Etymology From Greek. Authors: "... acro, meaning “tip end” or “extremity of a body”, mega, meaning “big” or “large”, and the suffix –omma, a noun meaning “eye”, and referring to the big compound eyes located on the radiolar subdistal region, typical of the genus". [details]

Grammatical gender Acromegalomma is neuter. Some original names erected comparatively recently in Megalomma had incorrect gender endings and were emended by Gil & Nishi when recombined. The emendments also should be used for future synonymy listings as Megalomma. The epithets affected are carunculatum for carunculata, inflatum for inflata,interruptum for interrupta, jubatum for jubata, and longoventrale for longoventralis. Additionally Megalomma 'lanigera' (Grube, 1846) should have been 'lanigerum' when recombined in Megalomma [details]

Nomenclature Acromegalomma Gil & Nishi, 2017 is a replacement name for Megalomma Johansson, 1926, which is a junior homonym to Megalomma Westwood, 1842 (Insecta, Coleoptera, Carabidae, which was erected as a subgenus of Cicindella. [details]
