Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet vitrea, feminine of the Latin adjective vitreus and meaning 'glassy, 'translucent' or 'vitreous', makes reference to the transparence of the body of the worm: "L'espèce que j'ai trouvée aux environs de la Torre dell'Isola [northern Sicily, in 1844; editor's note] est remarquable par l'extrême délicatesse et la parfaite transparence de tous les tissus. Cette transparence est telle que, lorsque l'Annélide est plongée dans l'eau de mer, on ne distingue plus que ses deux yeux d'un rouge vif, et deux rangées de points violets qui règnent tout le long des côtés du corps. Aussi désignerait-je cette espèce par l'épithète spécifique de Torrée vitrée (T. vitrea)." (Quatrefages, 1850: 34).  [details]
