Question about the name of the worm...

Does anyone know the derivation of it?  And who named it?  The "caenor"
part I expect comes from Caenia, a woman changed by the god Poseidon
into a man, Caenus.  But the "habditis" I haven't found out about.  And
why "elegans"?

Any help would be much appreciated.
