Name[edit]

Microplecostomus Silva et al., 2016

Etymology: The generic name is a combination of Greek, micro (mikrós) (= small), related to the small size of the adult type-specimen, and plecostomus (= a former generic name of species currently included in Loricariidae), also in reference to the small adult size of the type-species.
