Pronunciation kor ee doh rass (lineage nine).
Etymology . The specific epithet "thanatos" refers to Thanatos (from the Greek θᾰ́νᾰτος, thánatos, which means "death"), the Greek god or personification of death, and the twin brother of Hypnos, the god/personification of sleep. The name alludes to the fact that although both C. thanatos and C. hypnos may exhibit some visual similarities (in colour pattern), they are completely different in other aspects (general morphology).
