  • Eunomia looks like it means 'well-named' which is a weird self-referential pat on the back by the scientist/discoverers. "We're so good at naming things, this one is called the well-named bug." No. Eunomia is also a Greek goddess, where -nomia means order, not names. You get a pass, genus eunomia.
