Georeference RemarksThe only reference made to this Igarape is in the collections made by Carl Tenetz. Researchers that know the area haven't been able to establish the exact location of the Igarape and some of them believe that it was a temporary name given to an unnamed water body. However the Igarape is near Manaus and its mouth is in the Rio Negro. The locality was plotted NW of Manaus near the Igarape do Taruma-Acu with an uncertainty embracing other igarapes in the area as well.
