Etymology: Sinigarra: Derived from a combination of the Latin word Sinae (Chinese) and Garra, a generic name used for a group of labeonin species usually with a lower lip modified into a mental adhesive disc and three rows of pharyngeal teeth, in allusion to the presence of a similar disc-like structure.; napoense: The specific name is based on the type locality, Napo County. Used as adjective.

Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8. A member of the disc-bearing group composed of four other garrain genera, namely Garra , Placocheilus , Discogobioand Discocheilus. This group has lower lip modified into a mental adhesive disc posteriorly discontinuous from the mental region. This species can be diagnosed by having the anterior margin of the mental adhesive disc not modified (vs. modified) into an anteromedian crescentic fold, an upper lip present (vs. absent) but separated from the upper jaw, and indistinct (vs. more prominent) papillae scarcely (vs. densely) scattered over the rostral cap and lower lip or absent (Ref. 93153).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 1.0000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00933 (0.00435 - 0.02001), b=3.04 (2.86 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (21 of 100) .
