Known in the trade under the
name Corydoras sp. ‘Guarana’
after the Brazilian lemonade of the same colour. Given
the C-code number of C065. Lineage:
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: This is akin to most
of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed
with small to medium tank mates such as Tetras, Rasboras
and Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes.
Diet: A good quality flake food and
tablet food for adults with sporadic feedings of frozen
or live food will keep your Corydoras in
good health. Remarks:
As of the latest paper by Tencatt & Britto, 2016,
this species has now been described as Corydoras
eversi, named in the honour of Hans-Georg Evers
who has for many years, alongside Ian Fuller, been
at the forefront of the ever evolving Corydoras
catfish subfamily Corydoradinae.
