NameEdit

Ameiva nodam Koch, Venegas, Rödder, Flecks & Böhme, 2013: 267

  • Holotype: CORBIDI 1870, adult ♂, collected by P. Venegas and C. Koch on 9 May 2008.
  • Type locality: “Bellavista, Province of Jaén, Region of Cajamarca, Peru (05°38’ 15.6’’S, 78°37’ 59.2’’W, 390–440 m above sea level)”.
  • Etymology: The specific epithet is an agglutination of the exclamation “no dam”. The authors chose this peculiar name to protest against the possible dam construction activities for four hydroelectricity projects along the Marañón river, between the Regions of Cajamarca and Amazonas.
