Corydoras haraldshultziis sometimes confused withC.
difference being that C.sterbai has for simplistic
reasons a dark basic body colour with white spots
on the head and snout area, while C. haraldshultzi
has it in reverse, a light body with dark spots/ reticulations.
Another Corydoras confused with C. haraldshultzi
araguaiensis, but it has no orange
colouration to the fins. Other similar looking species
C. spectabilisand C.
Placed in lineage 8 sub clade 4 which comprises the
"intermediate long-snouts" with deeper bodies.
It also includes Brochis in sub-clade 1 which
was synonymised with Corydoras by Britto
in 2003 but in time there will be a revision which
will resurrect Brochis (Cope, 1871) to full
genera again. 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 a good quality flake.
South America:Brazil and Bolivia. Type locality:
Brasilien, Rio Guaporé.
