Similar to C.
we placed this on ScotCat many years ago into this
species but we named it at the time as C.
cf. spilurus. After However on closer examination
of the original paper it has recently been proven
to be a completely new species belonging to lineage
8 sub clade 4. whereas Corydoras spilurus
is a true Corydoras La Cépède,
1803 belonging to lineage 1. (Fuller 2016). It has
now been given the CorydorasWorld number of CW138.
Placed in Lineage 8 sub clade 4 which comprises the
"intermediate long-snouts" with deeper bodies.
It also includes Brochis in sub-clade 1 which
was synonymised with Corydoras by Britto
in 2003 but in time there will be a revision which
will resurrect Brochis (Cope, 1871) to full
genera again. 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.
