Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic name is composed by the name of the genus Ammotrypane Rathke, 1843 (junior synonym of Ophelina Örsted, 1843), followed by the Latin suffix -ella (masculine: -ellus), which is added to a noun to form a diminuitive of that noun, and refers to the reduced size of the new taxon and its similarity with Ammotrypane: ''A somewhat small form, measuring about ¾ of an inch long, and more slender than a young Ammotrypane aulogaster of the same length, while the contour is different. [...] The succeeding segments are somewhat narrow, as in allied forms (e.g. Ammotrypane)'' (McIntosh, 1878: 505). [details]
