Description

Biology

Etymology

  • Philinoglossa. From genus Philine + from Greek “glossa”, tongue.
  • Philine. Derived from the Greek word “philos” which means ‘friend’.
  • Helgolandica. From Heligoland, small German islands in the North Sea, in Pinneberg district, in the Slesvig-Holstein land. Heligoland is located 46 kilometres off the German coastline and consists of two islands: the inhabited main island (Hauptinsel) to the west, and the Düne to the east, which is not permanently inhabited, but is today the location of Heligoland’s airstrip.
