Similar to C.
tukano and also to the long snouted
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 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 flake.
Colombia, upper Caquetá River basin.
