Halp! Halp! These NAMES!

Hey JD and others...could we find out what these names actually mean? What is behind them? Anyone know Latin? LEPTObotia, PARAbotia, superCILIARIS, NeoMACHEILUS? JD, your "name game" could have a new bent to it, eh?! What is the physical differences among these fish? What's the difference between Botia superciliaris and the Parabotias? In my book, Botia superciliaris doesn't even have a Botia-shape. What is it doing in the Genus Botia anyway?
