First given the C-Number in
the German Datz magazine in the December edition of
1994. One of the few Corydoras to come from
the Rio Xingu. Lineage: Placed in
Lineage 9, the "short-snouted" species with
the designated type species: C. punctatus.
A revision in the future would constitute the resurrection
of the genus name Hoplosopma (Agassiz, 1846).
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 good health.
