Similar looking body pattern
found further north (Brazil) in warmer waters. 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.
C114, Corydoras sp.
