Small "aeneus" type
species which has been given the Corydoras World number
of CW041. This species is not unlike C.
venezuelanus.and is found together with CW016.
Lineage: Placed in Lineage 7 alongside
other members of the so called "aeneus group"
with the designated type species: C. eques.
A revision and description of CW041 in the future
would constitute the resurrection of the genus name
Osteogaster (Cope, 1871). 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
Peru, Madre de Dios.
Male: 4.0 cm (1½ins)
Female: 4.5cm (1¾ins)
