Name edit

Sagittalarva Victor, 2013

Etymology: The name Sagittalarva derives from the combination of sagitta, arrow or dart in Latin, and larva, originally ghost or mask in Latin and first applied to immature forms by Linnaeus, referring to the unusual dartshaped larva of the Cape Wrasse; both nouns and the combination are feminine.
