The mass spectra of singly charmed and bottom baryons, Λc/b(1/2±,3/2-) and Ξc/b(1/2±,3/2-), are investigated using a nonrelativistic potential model with a heavy quark and a light diquark. The masses of the scalar and pseudoscalar diquarks are taken from a chiral effective theory. The effect of UA(1) anomaly induces an inverse hierarchy between the masses of strange and nonstrange pseudoscalar diquarks, which leads to a similar inverse mass ordering in ρ-mode excitations of singly heavy baryons.
