Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology genus name is to honor Dr Mary E. Petersen, in recognition of her many studies of polychaetes, including a valuable synthesis of Sternaspis species, and especially because of her long-term support of all our research activities. Petersenaspis is a free combination of her last name and the second part of Sternaspis (Gr. shield) to stress the affinity with the stem genus. Gender: feminine. [details]
