Etymology

The original description does not explain, but appears likely to be an honorific after the death of the german Eduard Reimoser, who worked on various arachnids and was associated with Vienna museum, and collected many specimens during the Austrian Biological Expedition to Costa Rica in April to July 1930 (See Roewer 1933). Reimoser is known to have corresponded with Roewer, plus loaned or donated material.

Placement

Originally placed in Cosmetidae, Cosmetinae.
