Very similar to a species
which has been given the C-Number of C139.
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 new 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 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
Guyana; Potaro River, a tributary of the Essequibo
River near Potaro Landing.
Male: 5.0cm. (2ins). Female
