Etymology (kangueryensis): The specific epithet “kangueryensis” is a proper noun from the type-locality. It comes from the Guarani language and means “water coming from the bones” (Kangue: bone; ry: liquid, water), in reference to a place where the tribe MbyaGuarani buried their members. It is also the name of a stream that flows 2000 m far from the location where the holotype was collected.
