Name: Timaviella Sciuto and Moro 2017

Proposed as: gen. nov.

Etymology: N.L. fem. dim. n. Timaviella, the generic name “Timaviella” was derived from the mysterious river Timavo, which is part of the Reka-Timavo hydrogeological complex, in turn included in the Italian-Slovenian Karst system (Civita et al., 1995; Cucchi et al., 2015). This generic name was chosen because the Timavo river is involved in the formation of Karst caves, but also for the parallelism between the hidden nature both of this river and of the genus Timaviella
