Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet armata (masculine: armatus) is a Latin adjective meaning 'armed', 'fortified' or 'armoured', and presumably refers to the notopodial acicular spines present in the last 8 to 11 chaetigers, forming two well separated dorsal arcs: ''La région postérieure [...] comprend 8 à 11 segments plus grands que les précédents, courts, saillants, séparés les uns des autres par une étroite et profonde constriction. Ils portent, à la face dorsale, des grosses soies aciculaires en poinçon disposées sur deux arcs assez écartés'' (Fauvel, 1929: 184-185). [details]
