Name[edit]

Deuterodon pedri Eigenmann, 1908

  • Lectotype: MCZ 21081 (78.4 mm SL specimen).

Type locality: Brazil, Rio San Antonio, Santa Anna de Ferros (currently Ferros, Minas Gerais, Doce River basin).

Etymology: in honor of Dom Pedro II (1825-1891), last ruler of the Empire of Brazil (and learned amateur scientist), who collected several specimens of this fish which were not included in type series because of their poor condition. (from: The ETYFish Project)
