Etymology: Synodontis: Greek, syn, symphysis = grown together + Greek, odous = teeth (Ref. 45335);  macropunctatus: The specific epiteth is a combination of the Greek 'makros', meaning large, and the Latin 'punctata', meaning spotted, a reference to the large spots that characterize the coloration pattern of this species (Ref. 75786).
