Relevant Information:

In Brazil called Corydoras sp. ‘Semibicuda’, after its head shape. A rare species, which is sympatric with C. ourastigma and C. similis. In the trade this species is known as Corydoras ‘New Violet’, and in Japan under the nomen nudum Corydoras ‘Matzusakae’. 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.
