Pisabo (also known as Pisagua/Pisahua) is a Panoan language spoken by approximately 600 people in Peru and formerly in Brazil, where it was known as Mayo (Maya, Maia), evidently the language known as Quixito.[3] No linguistic data is available (Fleck 2013), but it is reported to be mutually intelligible with Matses.
