|Etymology||Aspidoras: From the Greek aspis, meaning shield and doras, meaning skin; in reference to the bony plates. The specific epithet "aldebaran" refers to the red giant Aldebaran or Alpha Tauri (α Tauri), the brightest star of the Taurus constellation, deriving from the Arabic al Dabarān, which means “the follower”. The star presents a bright orange glow and it is positioned at the left eye of the mythological bull. The name alludes to the fact that A. aldebaran was firstly found among Aspidoras taurus type series, being promptly recognized as a different and new species by its peculiar morphology and colour pattern.|
