Arrived in a shipment as a
contaminent with C.
appeared in the German magazine DATZ, Dec. 1993. Lineage:
Placed in Lineage 8 sub clade 4 which comprises the
"intermediate long-snouts" with deeper bodies.
It also includes Brochis in sub-clade 1 which
was synonymised with Corydoras by Britto
in 2003 but in time there will be a revision which
will resurrect Brochis (Cope, 1871) to full
genera again. 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. Remarks:
The first image contributor reports that he found
this particular specimen in amongst a large group
of Corydoras bondi coppenamensis (now C.
coppenamensis) in a dealers tank
in Germany in the 1980s. C013 is syntopic (defined
as being similar in appearance) with Corydoras
Male: 5.0cm (2ins) Female:
