Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The specific epithet frontifilis is composed by the Latin noun fronti, dative singular of frons and meaning 'forehead' or 'front', and the Latin noun filis, plural of filum and meaning 'thread', 'string' or 'filament', and presumably refers to the presence of filiform appendages (tentacles and branchiae) only in the anterior region of the body of the species.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Type material found on stones, among Melobesia, at about 2 fathoms depth (about 4 m; see Grube, 1861: 77; Banse, 1969: 2600). Other records refer sand, stones, rocks, or calcareous algae, between 1-124 meters.  [details]
