Very similar to C.
from the same location apart from its smaller adult
size. Lineage: 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 Hoplosopma
(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
Brazil, Ribereiao dos Viados, an
affluent to the Rio Taquari close near the town of
Coxim., State of Mato Grosso do Sul.
Male: 3.0cm (1¼ins)
Female: 3.5cm (1½ins)
