From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis "Sternaspids with introvert hooks tapered. Pre-shield region with 7 segments. Ventro-caudal shield flexible with abundant sediment particles firmly adhered." [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Honors Dr Maurice Caullery, in recognition of his studies on polychaete reproductive biology and taxonomy, and especially because of his monograph on the Siboga Expedition, which took him 40 yr, and contained many new species. Caulleryaspis is a free combination of his last name and the second part of Sternaspis (Gr. shield) to stress the affinity with the stem genus. Gender: feminine. [details]
