This epithet is based on the Latin adjective asper (rough, coarse) and refers to its body sculpture.
Trigonopterus asper Riedel, sp. n. was coded as “Trigonopterus sp. 359”. It is closely related to Trigonopterus variolosus Riedel, sp. n. from which it can be separated by a larger penis with a longer flagellum. The minimal p-distance between both species is 9.5%.
