is placed in Lineage
9, the "short-snouted" species with the
designated type species: C. punctatus. A
revision 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, Upper Rio Tapajos drainage.
Male: 4.5cm (1¾ins)
Female: 5.0cm (2ins)
