Name[edit]

Cyphocharax jagunco Dutra et al., 2016

Type locality: Brazil, Minas Gerais State, Município Olhos D´água, Vereda Volta da Capoeira, tributary of Ribeirão da Areia, Rio Jequitinhonha drainage, 17°15'25.98"S, 43°43'35.91"W.

Etymology: The species name jagunco is in reference to the Portuguese term jagunço, a noun that probably derived of “jagun-jagun” from Yoruba (Africa), which means warrior. In Brazil, “jagunço” is equivalent to "roughneck". The species name is also an honor to the modernist Brazilian masterpiece by João Guimarães Rosa “Grande Sertão: Veredas”. The story, which is narrated and starred by a “jagunço”, occurs in the northern portion of Minas Gerais state, a region that includes the type locality of the species.
