Common Name
Type Locality Caño Barranca, about 1.25 hours downstream from Jabillal (opposite bank) on río Caura, 7°08'N, 65°04'W, Bolivar, Venezuela.
Etymology The generic name is a combination of the Greek word pseudes, meaning false or deceptive, plus the aspredinid genus Bunocephalus. It alludes to the fact that members of this genus have previously been mistaken for juveniles of various species of Bunocephalus. The specific name is patronymic in honor of Dr. John G.
