This species is exported out
of Belém and may be native to this area. In
the future it may turn out to be a form of C.
Placed it in Lineage 1. and when there is a revision
they will stay as Corydoras (Lacépède,
1803) with the type species of C. geoffroy
La Cépède, 1803. Aquarium Care:
As this is one of the longer snouted species it will
be well suited to most community tanks. A well planted
tank with a soft substrate such as sand so they can
bury their snouts while searching out food. 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.
Male: 6.0 cm (2½ins)
