Relevant Information:

Very similar to Corydoras griseus from Guyana (C040 is from Rondônia, Brazil). A third species is also known from Rondônia but has a golden midlateral line, this species is C073. 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 good health.
