- Original Source with Priority
- Nobili, G. (1906) Faune carcinologique de la Mer Rouge. Décapodes et Stomatopodes. Annales des Sciences Naturelles. Zoologie (Série 9) 4:1–347.
- From the Latin word meaning “cut out” (as in "excised")?
Nobili (1906) proposed excisa as a substitute for Dana's (1851) use of the name nitida, since the latter was already a homonym of an earlier usage by Desmarest (1817). Crane considered Nobili's rather loose proposal to have no taxonomic standing. Her interpretation was incorrect, and Nobili's name currently has priority for this species.
