Etymology Not stated. However, it is clear that Gyptis is a female personal name most likely adopted from a foundation myth for Marseille (Greek Massalia), the area where the worm was collected: "A foundation myth reported by Aristotle in the 4th century BCE as well as by Latin authors, recounts how Greek ships from Phocaea in Ionia (west coast of Asia Minor) came to the Marseille area in 600 BCE, and the Phocaean Protis (son of Euxenus) married Gyptis (or Petta), the daughter of a local Segobriges king called Nannus, thus giving Protis the right to receive a piece of land where he was able to found a city."

Homonymy Gyptis Marion, 1874 is a homonym (trans-Codes, thus a 'hemihomonym') to Gyptis Cassini, 1818 in Compositae (Plantae) as published in Henri Cassini, 1818. Bulletin des Sciences, par la Societe Philomatique 1818: 139 https://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/4691158. As plant and animal names are regulated by different codes, the junior zoological Gyptis remains valid (ICZN recommendation 1A urges that new genus names do not duplicate non-animal names) . The plant Gyptis is a genus from South America with several species. [details]

Authority The author of Gyptis is Marion alone. It is quite clear that Marion alone wrote the 1874 'news item' article in which Gyptis was prematurely published with minimal detail . However, there has been a 'tradition' in recent decades to credit also Bobretzky who was Marion's co-author on the full publication. Hartman in her catalogue dated the genus from the 1875 Marion & Bobretzky paper, but later authors (e.g., Pleijel, 1991:128) noticed the earlier brief mention [details]

Etymology Not stated. However, it is clear that Gyptis is a female personal name most likely adopted from a foundation myth for Marseille (Greek Massalia), the area where the worm was collected: "A foundation myth reported by Aristotle in the 4th century BCE as well as by Latin authors, recounts how Greek ships from Phocaea in Ionia (west coast of Asia Minor) came to the Marseille area in 600 BCE, and the Phocaean Protis (son of Euxenus) married Gyptis (or Petta), the daughter of a local Segobriges king called Nannus, thus giving Protis the right to receive a piece of land where he was able to found a city." [main source: Wikipedia] [details]

Grammatical gender feminine. Gyptis is a female personal name (see etymology). Marion and Bobretzky (1875) treated it as feminine when they named Gyptis propinqua, and subsequent authors followed their example (some recombined names were not corrected for gender) [details]

Homonymy Gyptis Marion, 1874 is a homonym (trans-Codes, thus a 'hemihomonym') to Gyptis Cassini, 1818 in Compositae (Plantae) as published in Henri Cassini, 1818. Bulletin des Sciences, par la Societe Philomatique 1818: 139 https://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/4691158. As plant and animal names are regulated by different codes, the junior zoological Gyptis remains valid (ICZN recommendation 1A urges that new genus names do not duplicate non-animal names) . The plant Gyptis is a genus from South America with several species. [details]
