This little known species
is reported to be exported from Peru.
Lineage: Placed it in Lineage 1.
When there is a revision they will stay as Corydoras
(Lacépède, 1803) with the type species
of C. geoffroy 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:
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.
