Sorry I can't find a common name for this species, very little info seems to be available online and it is recently split. Further information available in: "Angulo, Arturo & Santos, A. & López, M. & Langeani, Francisco & McMahan, Caleb. (2018). A new species of Astyanax (Characiformes: Characidae) from Costa Rica and Panama, with a key to the lower Central American species of the genus. Journal of Fish Biology. 92. 10.1111/jfb.13626."

I called it "Orsted's Astyanax Tetra" since it's named after Orsted and most of the Astyanax genus tetras use that in their name. That way it's automatically grouped with all the other tetras.
