Peckoltia lujani Armbruster , Werneke & Tan, 2015

Type locality: Venezuela, Amazonas, río Orinoco at Paso Ganado, 38 km NNW of San Fernando de Atabapo, 04.3842°, -067.7747°.

Holotype: AUM. AUM 53523. 75.1 mm SL. 27.III.2010. leg. N.K. Lujan, D.C. Werneke, M.H. Sabaj, T. Carvalho, V. Meza, and O. León.

Etymology: Named in honor of the former graduate student of JWA, Dr. Nathan Lujan. Dr. Lujan has led expeditions to some of the most remote regions of South America and obtained some of the most important specimens for the study of loricariid systematics specifically as well as South American fish systematics and ecology in general. In the process, he has given JWA more taxonomic work in the last decade than he had thought possible, and he is very thankful. Dr. Lujan also collected the best specimens known of the species.
