A smaller form similar to
was collected by Joachim Knaack in the Río
Itenez, Bolivia 2003. Placed in Lineage 9, the "short-snouted"
species with the designated type species: C. punctatus.
A revision in the future would constitute the resurrection
of the genus name Hoplosopma (Agassiz, 1846).
Aquarium Care: A tank setup would entail
a soft substrate such as sand or a small gravel and
a nice plant covering around the back and sides of
the aquarium. If housed in a community tank a mixture
of small South American characins or the smaller varieties
of Asian Rasboras would suffice, as larger fishes
would intimidate these shy Cory's, and would stop
them eating and would be therefore detrimental to
their overall health. Diet: The usual
fare for adult Corydoras, a good quality flake
food, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and whiteworm
