EtymologyNamed after the late entomologist Frederico Lane, a teacher and friend of Nelson Jorge da Silva, Jr.

The genus was named after the junction of the Latin noun “zona” (belt or waist band) and the adjective “teres” (smooth, elegant, or polished), in reference to the characteristic naked belt that separates the body and base of the hemipenis of the type species.
