Similar in colour pattern
including its variations to C.
a species coming from the upper Rio Negro drainage.
CW127 is placed in Lineage 9, the "short-snouted"
species with the designated type species: C. punctatus.
A revision and a description in the future would constitute
the resurrection of the genus name Hoplosoma
(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.
South America: Brazil,
tributary of the Rio Jamanxim, Rio Tapajos drainage.
Male: 5.5cm (2¼ins)
Female: 6.0cm (2½ins)
