Another undescribed species
given the number by CorydorsWold of CW115. This species
is similar looking to C090from the same location.
Placed in Lineage 9, the "short-snouted"
species with the designated type species: C. punctatus.
A revision and 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.
