is so far known only from two tributaries to the rio
Aripuanã and its conservation status is uncertain
based on the currently available data of its geographic
distribution. Despite that, no imminent threats to
the species were detected in the area, and considering
that it occurs in a protected area (Reserva Extrativista
Guariba Roosevelt), Corydoras zawadzkii would
be classified as Least Concern (LC) according to the
International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)
categories and criteria (IUCN Standards and Petitions
Subcommittee, 2014) (Tencatt & Ohara, 2016).
it in Lineage 1. When there is a revision they will
stay as Corydoras (Lacépède,

La Cépède, 1803. Aquarium Care:
As this is one of the longer snouted species it will
be well suited to most community tanks. A well planted
tank with a soft substrate such as sand so they can
bury their snouts while searching out food. Diet:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and
a good quality flake. Etymology:
Corydoras zawadzkii is named in honour of
Dr. Cláudio Henrique Zawadzki, professor at
the Universidade Estadual de Maringá (UEM),
for his comprehensive contributions to the knowledge
of Neotropical ichthyofauna, especially of the Loricariidae.
Cláudio is a dear friend that directly participates
in the professional formation of the first author.
