Independently discovered 1857 Oct. 19 by R. Luther at Düsseldorf.

Two possible interpretations for this name are published. Virginia is perhaps the famous Roman girl, stabbed by her father, the centurion Virginius, to save her from the decemvir Appius Claudius in 448 B.C. The name could be also an allusion to the contiguous state of Virginia. (H 8)
