The species name is dedicated to the collector of the types, Chris Reid, a coleopterist working at the Australian Museum, Sydney.
The specimens were collected as part of the Insects of Indonesia Project, a collaboration of the ROM with the MZB. This species is similar to Ettchellsia nigripes Mita & Shaw, sp. n. About identification of the two species, see the remarks of Ettchellsia nigripes.
