This species is syntopic with
the very similar lineage 9 species CW015,
but lacks the fine spotting and grows to a much larger
size (CorydorasWorld.com). Lineage:
CW180 is placed in Lineage 1 the "saddle-nosed"
species and when there is a revision they will stay
as Corydoras (Lacépède, 1803)
with the type species of C. geoffroy La Cépède,
1803. 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
a good quality flake.
South America:Suriname, Tapanohony river.
Male: 8.5cm (3¼ins)
