Diagnosis Original diagnosis by Blainville (1828: 493): ''Corps alongé, cylindrique, atténué aux extrémités, et composé d'un grand nombre d'articulations. Bouche et anus terminaux à l'extrémité de segmens non modifiés. Appendices dissemblables. Ceux des dix-sept premiers formés probablement de deux soies épineuses de chaque côté, les autres composés: 1.° D'une sorte de renflement costiforme, proéminent et terminé inférieurement par une verrue bifide; 2.° D'une soie simple et courte; 3.° D'une lamelle lancéolée et arquée.''

Etymology Not stated in the original description. The generic name Scoloplos is from the Greek, a masculine word referring to anything pointed, or a thorn, and might thus refer either to the characteristic pointed head, or to the spiny bristles referred in the original decription: ''Appendices [...] des dix-sept premiers [segments] formés probablement de deux soies épineuses de chaque côté'' (Blainville, 1828: 493). [details]

Grammatical gender Masculine. Scoloplos is masculine in Greek and most authors have used masculine adjectives with it. [details]
