The name »Lycalis« is a kunstwort borrowing its first part from the Greek translation of the name of one of the company's founders (wolf = λυκος, lykos) and supplementing it with lis as an acronym for life science. Zoology knows »lycalis« also as the specific name of a rare Madagascan butterfly first described by the French entomologist Pierre Viette in 1989.
