|Scientific Name||Merodoras nheco Higuchi, Birindelli, Sousa & Britski , 2007|

|Etymology||From the Greek meros (= part, portion), in reference to the incomplete lateral line, plus the suffix –doras, as traditionally applied to genera in this family. Gender masculine. Specific name toponymic with reference to the town of Nhecolândia, the place where this species was discovered. The Portuguese nh is pronounced like the French or Italian gn or the Spanish ñ. The word nheco apparently does not have any particular significance other than having probably been a nickname for the town founder.|
