|Taxon Notes:||Derivation is apparently from the Latin adjective scaber = rough, referring to the rough texture of the skin; scabra is the appropriate ending when in Meuschenia (Australian Faunal Directory online 3 April 2023).|
|Scientific Name Notes:||Often referred to as Parika scaber and further work required to determine generic placement.|
