Agavotaguerra (Agavotoqueng) is an extinct Arawakan language of Brazil. Ethnologue leaves it "unclassified", but notes that it's related to Waura and Yawalapiti, which suggests that it might be an Arawakan language of the Waurá group. Glottolog states that it's unattested, which suggests that any classification is ethnic rather than linguistic.
