|Etymology||Amblydoras: From the Greek amblys, meaning blunt and doras, meaning skin (also a word commonly used in forming generic names for doradids); in reference to the non-serrated dorsal spine. 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.|
