Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The term Mantacaprella is dedicated to the Manta Diving Center (www.mantadivingcenter.cv) in Cape Verde. The Manta Diving Center was responsible for the deployment of the first artificial reefs in Cape Verde waters within the framework of the Rebuilding Nature project. It was also by Mantas's initiative that a Portuguese research team started studying the assemblages of the natural and artificial reef assemblages of the Bay of Santa Maria (Sal Island, Cape Verde), where this species was originally identified. herefore, we would like to highlight the role of all team members (skippers, divers, technical stuff and researchers) involved on this biodiversity project, by associating the Manta Diving Center with the name of the new genus. [details]
