Etymology. The genus name Camiarodes alludes to the morphological resemblance of this species to the genus Camiarus; it was originally coined as a manuscript name by Dr. Willy Kuschel (NZAC), who first recognized it as new. The specific epithet nunni honors John Nunn, through whose efforts the majority of these specimens were collected.
