species with the designated type species: C. punctatus.
A revision in the future would constitute the resurrection

with small to medium tank mates such as Tetras, Rasboras
and Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes.

or live food will keep your Corydoras in
Colombia, Cuduyaria river, tributary of the Rio Vaupes,
west of the Rio Negro.
