Etymology: The specific epithet maculibotella is a compound adjective derived from the Latin maculos (= spotted) and botellus (= a small sausage, and apparently the origin of the English word pudding) in reference to the spots on the male urogenital papilla that is reminiscent of the British pudding, known as spotted dick, which is light brown with dark spots.
