Scientific names: Limnoreia was a nereid, the daughter of the
sea god Nereus in Greek mythology. Lignorum is composed of the Latin
word lignum, meaning wood, and probably the Latin genitiv-plural ending
-orum. It is possible that the last part of the species name has another
meaning, for example the Greek word orusso perforera meaning penetrate,
while horos, also Greek means edge or boundry.
Other english names: Wood boring gribble.
