- Holotype: ZFMK 85024, adult ♂, collected by P. Venegas and C. Koch on 8 July 2005.
- Type locality: “Balsas, Province of Chachapoyas, Region of Amazonas, Peru (06°49’11.6’’S, 78°00’12.2’’W, 1000 m above sea level)”.
- Etymology: The specific epithet is an agglutination of the Latin nomen “agger” which means dam and the verb “recusare” which means reject. As in Ameiva nodam this name was chosen to further emphasize our protest against the possible dam constructions along the Marañón river.
