Comment 
EtymologyEtymology – The specific name is a noun in the genitive case and is a patronym for Jean-Marc Touzet, who has made important contributions to the study and conservation of the herpetofauna of Ecuador including valuable collections and the establishment of the Gustavo Orcés Herpetological Foundation in Quito. Touzet has had a great positive impact in the careers of many Ecuadorian herpetologists including most of the authors in this paper. He was the first person to collect a specimen of the species described by TORRES-CARVAJAL et al., which he recognized as an undescribed species of Enyalioides.
