Ichthyothere is a genus of plants found in parts of South America (the Amazon). The name ichthyothere literally translates as fish poison -- the active constituent ichthyothereol is a polyacetylene compound so toxic to fish that they will jump out of the water if I. terminalis leaves are used as bait.
