Also know in the trade under
the names of, Corydoras sp. 'Heiko' or Corydoras
sp. 'Peru bondi'.
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).
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. Remarks: Proven to be
the same species as C. araguaiaensis but
with a larger spotted pattern and a golden colouration.
South America: Peru;
Male: 5.0cm (2ins) Female:
