Name[edit]

Parapriacanthus sharm Randall & Bogorodsky, 2016

Type locality: Red Sea, Gulf of Aqaba, southern end of Sinai Peninsula, Sharm el Sheikh.

Etymology: named for the type locality, the Egyptian dive-resort city of Sharm el Sheikh near the southern end of the Sinai Peninsula, and the gateway to Ras Muhammed National Park. Sharm in Arabic means narrow passage; the city contains a narrow isthmus between the Gulf of Aqaba and the Gulf of Suez.
