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.
Lineage: 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
a good quality flake.
Male: 4.0cm (1½ins)
Female: 4.5cm (1¾ins).
