Another undescribed species
given the number by CorydorasWorld of CW118. This
species is similar looking to C.
the shape and position of the caudal peduncle spot
is different. It may turn out that this is a regional
variant of C. ourastigma. Lineage:
Placed 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:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and
a good quality flake.
