Mayaheros Říčan & Piálek, 2016

Etymology: Named after the native Mesoamerican Maya people whose ancestral distribution includes most of the native area of the M. urophthalmus group and which was very likely the ancestral area of the whole genus. The name is combined with the old cichlid genus name Heros (meaning hero). Gender: masculine. The name is to be understood as the hero of the Maya people.
