  Comment  
Most probably the correct spelling of the specific epithet. See comments under Labrus g*v*aza Linnaeus, 1758.
  Etymology of generic noun  
Name from Latin 'labrum' for lip, rim or edge; referring to the big lips of the fishes of the genus (from Ovid and Pliny according to Petrus Artedi).
  Etymology of specific epithet  
Most probably a misspelling of the specific epithet because based on Labrus guaza Loefling 1758:104 (type locality: Cumana, Venezuela) (see CofF).
