Etymology. We have pleasure in dedicating it to C. Chagas, thus associating his name with that of a Triatoma  , a genus of Hemiptera  whose importance the medical world has begun to recognize thanks to his studies ( Brumpt & Gomes 1914: 73).

Original citation. “Dedicamo-la com prazer a C. Chagas, associando deste modo o seu nome ao de um Triatoma  , gênero de Hemipteros cuja importância o mundo médico começou a reconhecer por intermédio dos  seus trabalhos” ( Brumpt & Gomes 1914: 73).
