Etymology: Bothrocara: Greek, bostrykos = cure of lack of hair + Tupí, guaraní, acará = the name of a fish. It could be also from Greek, kara = face (Ref. 45335);  nyx: Named for the Greek goddess of night and darkness; noun in apposition. It alludes ot the dark conditions prevalent in the deep waters and northern latitudes where this species occurs, and to the heavily pigmented lining of the mouth and visceral cavity.
