Relevant Information:

Similar to C. spilurus and 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 138. 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 good quality flake to name but a few.
