Etymology: The name of C. univittatus is based on the combination of the Latin word uni, which is the prefixal form of unus, meaning ‘one’, ‘single’, combined with the Latin word vittatus, meaning ‘striped’, as a reference to its leaf blades bearing a single, broad reddish-rose median stripe contrasting with the dark reddish-green marginal stripes.
