C. flaveolus is rare
in imports from the headwaters of the Sierra Piracicaba.
Placed in Lineage 6 which has always been classified
as Corydoras (Lacépède, 1803)
so a new genus would need to be described and a new
type species when a revision is carried out. Aquarium
Care: This is akin to most of this genus,
very peaceful, and would be best housed with small
to medium sized tankmates such as Tetras, Rasboras
and Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes.
Best to purchase 6 individuals or more as they will
be happier in a group. Diet: Readily
accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes granular
foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and good quality
Brazil, Rio Piracica and the Rio Tiete near Salto
and Sao Paulo.
Male: 5.0cm (2ins) Female:
5.5cm (2¼ins) .
