Cevalos Tovar describes two varieties having the names with similar or close pronunciation Ccoyu (= morteado) and Coillu (= enganarse). Both varieties have got round tubers, white with flesh colored with anthocyan. Ccoyu has a dark-violet and very starchy flesh. Neither of the descriptions do correspond to the accessions of Juzepczuk under the name Coyo.
