EtymologyThe specific epithet is a noun in the genitive singular case, honoring a leading conservationist, ecologist, and primatologist Prof. Jatna Supriatna (University of Indonesia) for his enormous contributions to biodiversity conservation in Indonesia, as well as his generous friendship and support of the first author. Prof. Supriatna was born on Bali where the new species was discovered. His valuable contributions to science, policy making, and conservation management, as well as to popularizing the conservation ethic among his students and the general public are highly commendable. He is a legend in the field of conservation and locally he is known as “The Noah of Modern History”. The NGO, Conservation International, has called him “the Conservation Warrior of Indonesia”.
