Note 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Named after the Latin expression sceptus (adjective), meaning "descending from the clouds". Being small and smooth as a hail-stone, E.scepta looks as if it were dropped form the clouds, which are occasionally as grey and dull as this shell. This name also conjures the contrast between high (clouds) and deep (the species habitat). [details]
