This is a rare species that
is closely related to C.
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
new revision is carried out. 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 this species is found in the southern
most parts of South America it would need cooler water
temperatures over longer periods.
