EtymologyThe specific epithet “macondo” is the fictitious name of the village from García-Márquez’ novel Cien Años de Soledad. This story was based along and broadly inspired by the Atlantic coast of Colombia. The word macondo is used here in apposition, referring to the type locality of the new species, and also honouring the coastal people of Colombia.
