Etymology Not explicitly stated in the original description. The specific epithet flava is a Latin adjective meaning 'yellow' or 'golden', and refers presumably to the yellow colour of the specimens: "La région antérieure est à peu prés incolore, mais tout le reste de l'animal paraît d'un jaune assez vif. Cette couleur provient uniquement de l'intestin" (Claparède, 1870: 487). [details]
