The name (meaning severe) refers to the scowling appearence caused by the lines on the head section that make the spider look like it is frowning.
"A noteworthy feature... is the presence of a patterned stripe of whitish hairs running the length of the body and the fluffy white brushes on its palps, which are often waved about when the spider is active." (Atkinson, 2017)
