Scientific Name Tympanopleura longipinna  Walsh, Ribeiro & Rapp Py-Daniel, 2015
Common Name
Type Locality Rondônia, rio Madeira, Calama, Praia do Caraparu, Brazil.
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 longipinna is derived from the Latin longus, meaning long or extended, in combination with the Latin pinna, referring to fin. The name is in reference to the long, multi-rayed anal fin of this species relative to congeners.

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.
