I've just bought these corys which were labeled as bronze, which they clearly are not! I have narrowed them down to being either C. rabouti or C. zygatus. I'm inclined to think C. zygatus myself as there is a light bar just visible running down from the dorsal spine as in the species description on PlanetCatfish, but I'm not 100% sure. Can anyone confirm?

The photos were taken in a great hurry and are not great, I can get better if necessary

EDIT: Since writing the above I found Graham Ramsay's excellent article on this site and am slightly more confident that I have C. zygatus but still not quite entirely convinced.

Almost certainly C. zygatus.
