Two similarly patterned species
were collected from the same location, a short snouted
species (shown here) and a long snouted species.This
species is almost identical in colour pattern to CW088
which is found in the Rio Jura in North Western Brazil.
CW091 is 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
Colombia, Rio Vaupes, 40km East Of Mitu.
