Very similar to Corydoras
rabautiand are sometimes difficult to tell apart.
C.zygatus is a slimmer fish, not so colourful
and grows larger. The fry of each of these two has
proven that they are two separate Corydoras
species. (Fuller, 1980). Lineage:
Placed in Lineage 7 alongside other members of the
so called "aeneus group" with the designated
type species: C. eques. A revision in the
future would constitute the resurrection of the genus
name Osteogaster (Cope, 1871). 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
Peru; Loreto, Rio Huallaga system, creek, Yurimaguas.
Ecuador; Tributaries of the Rio Pastaza and Rio Tigre.
Type locality: Creek, Yurimaguas
Male: 6.5cm (2½ins)
Female: 7.0cm (2¾ins)
