Etymology Not explicitly stated by the author. The name Paedophylax is composed by the prefix of Greek origin paedo-, meaning 'of a child' or 'relating to children', and the Greek noun phylax, meaning 'guardian' or 'protector'. It refers presumably to the parental care provided by females to embryos, carrying the fertilized eggs attached to their bodies until the juveniles are fully developed: "Il est remarquable que tous ces genres [Paedophylax, Exogone, and Exotokas], si voisins au point de vue anatomique, soient formés par des espèces portant leurs petits jusqu'à l'écloison des œufs et au delà" (Claparède, 1868: 520). [details]

Etymology Not explicitly stated by the author. The name Paedophylax is composed by the prefix of Greek origin paedo-, meaning 'of a child' or 'relating to children', and the Greek noun phylax, meaning 'guardian' or 'protector'. It refers presumably to the parental care provided by females to embryos, carrying the fertilized eggs attached to their bodies until the juveniles are fully developed: "Il est remarquable que tous ces genres [Paedophylax, Exogone, and Exotokas], si voisins au point de vue anatomique, soient formés par des espèces portant leurs petits jusqu'à l'écloison des œufs et au delà" (Claparède, 1868: 520). [details]
