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.
Lineage: 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.
