Etymology Not stated in the original description. The specific epithet formosa is a Latin adjective meaning 'beautiful' or 'handsome', and refers presumably to the aesthetic valoration made by Claparède (1870: 480) of the species: "Cette espèce est, sans contredit, l'un des Alciopiens les plus beaux du golfe de Naples. [...] la grande taille de ce ver, parfaitement incolore, à l'exception des yeux et des organes glandulaires, en fait l'un des plus splendides ornements des aquariums.[details]
