  • Sibon noalamina Lotzkat, Hertz & Köhler, 2012
Holotype: SMF 91539 (original field number SL 775), adult male; collected by Andreas Hertz and Sebastian Lotzkat on 10 August 2010.
Type locality: Headwaters of Río Chiriquí Malí, approximately 6.4 km NW Fortuna dam (8.7891°N, 82.2155°W, 1050 m elevation), Bosque Protector Palo Seco, Comarca Ngöbe-Buglé (formerly province of Bocas del Toro), Panama.
Etymology: The specific epithet is a contraction of the exclamation no a la mina!, Spanish for no to the mine, in the sense of no mining. This affirmation was and is used by members of the indigenous Ngöbe communities living in the Serranía de Tabasará in the course of their protests against mining interests aiming to exploit their territory.
