Like many Magueyes, the name coyote is used regionally to refer to different agave species. In most cases, Maguey coyote refers to a wild Agave americana, meaning it’s related to Maguey arroqueno and Maguey sierra negra. In other cases, however, like in San Luis Amatlan, some local producers use the term coyote for an Agave karwinskii, meaning it’s related to Maguey cuishe, madre-cuishe, etc. In 2019, a batch of coyote under the Mezcalosfera label listed the species as Agave lyoba.
