Another undescribed species
given the number by CorydorsWorld of CW116. This species
is found alongside CW045but has a spotted body pattern and a different
head and snout shape.
Placed it in Lineage 1. 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.
Brazil, Amazonas state near Jutai.
Male: 6.0cm (2½ins)
