Étymologie

Gower et Winkler[3] suggèrent, bien que Beddome n'est pas expliqué son choix, que le nom du genre Xylophis dérive du grec ancien ξύλον, xylon, « bois[4] », et ὄϕις, ophis, « serpent », et fait référence à couleur de ces serpents ou au fait qu'on les trouve souvent dans le bois mort comme l'indique Beddome dans sa description de Xylophis indicus (synonyme de Xylophis stenorhynchus).
