EtymologyEdit

Bunostomum: Greek βουνός (mound) + Greek στόμα (mouth). Gender neuter. Bunochelis: Greek βουνός (mound) + Greek χηλή (forceps). The ending -is (gender indeterminate) becomes feminine because Roewer (1923: 767) treated it as such in the combination B. spinifera; see ICZN Art. 30a.i. (Crawford 1992: 14).

Type speciesEdit
