Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet crassicapitis is composed by the Latin adjective crassi, form of crassus and meaning 'dense', 'thick' or 'solid', and capitis the genitive singular of the Latin noun caput, meaning 'head', and presumably refers to the prostomium of the species, described as being a ''broad, flattened anterior end'' (Fauchald, 1972: 179).  [details]
