This was the first species
to be given the internet based CW-number in 2006 from
the Corydoras World website owned by Ian Fuller. These
numbers represent unidentified species that have not
or ever have been given a C-number from the German
based Datz magazine. CW001 is a dwarf species, which
was first thought to be C.
the fact that it was exported out of Belem, Eastern
Brazil it probably represents a new species. Placed
in Lineage 9, the "short-snouted" species
with the designated type species: C. punctatus.
A revision and a description 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.
South America: Unknown,
