|Scientific Name||Tympanopleura rondoni (Miranda Ribeiro, 1914)|
|Type Locality||Rio Negro at Mañaos, Brazil.|
|Synonym(s)||Ageneiosus madeirensis, Ageneiosus rondoni|
|Etymology||Transliterated from the Greek tympanon, meaning drum, and pleura, meaning side or rib (pleuron), nouns in apposition, in reference to the pseudotympanum. The specific epithet is a patronym named in honour of Cândido Mariano da Silva Rondon (1865-1958), famous Brazilian Army Marshal, pioneering telegraph engineer, patriot, zealous explorer, and protector of indigenous tribes.|
|Identification||Both Tympanopleura and Ageneiosus do not have obvious, permanent barbles. The two genera can be externally distinguished in that Tympanopleura has a prominent pseudotympanum consisting of an area on the side of the body devoid of epaxial musculature where the gas bladder contacts the internal coelomic wall; are shorter, blunter headed without greatly elongated jaws; and have a smaller adult body size.|
