Description

Biology

Etymology

  • Elysia. It is a name of Latin origin, derived from the word Elysium, which in mythology is the home of the blessed, known as the “Elysian fields”. The name Elysia also means “God’s oath” in Hebrew. Frieder Sauer comments that Elysia means heavenly.
  • Papillosa. Derived from Latin word “papilla”, meaning “with papillae”. A papilla is a small nipplelike elevation of the skin.
