Similar to C.
this species has no blotch in the dorsal fin and has
bars instead. C. sodalis is included in Lineage
8 (sub-clade 3) with the "intermediate long-snouts"
with deeper bodies. 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:
There is a difference in markings and size in all
the images here (especially thumbnail no.2) and this
is a group along with C. sodalis which needs
further work carried out to find out if they are all
the one variable or different species (Fuller, pers.
comm. March 2015).
