I was in one fishroom of one local breeder.
He breeds only comercial fish, like cory aenus, panda, paleatus, guppy, xifo...you get the point!
BUT, while i was watching young panda's i have found in one tank NEW species of cory!!
I have never seen that kind of cory.
His body was all colorless, and he had a a band on his eyez, much thiner than c.panda and similiar looking like c.arcuatus have, only band was passing thru his head only!!
I imidatly asked what kind of cory is that, and he sead it is c.panda deformation!
And he showed me one thank with only DEFORMED cory's that he keeps...
He has some pandas and aenus, all similiar, some even with zebra pattern, but i have found one that got me thinking.
I was an corydoras aenus type. ALL BLACK!
First what i thought, this can't be true?
Could it be that c.aenus black is in fact a color variaton of regular bronze cory?????
I will post pics as soon as i get them!!
I know that i am getting to much excited, but this could really mean something... Allan, Ian, anybody else??!?

i think that the black aeneus is just as you said,, a colour variant,
when they first came into this country it was said that they were differnt to aeneus,
but i think that now the general consensus is that they are just colour variants..

I will aslo send some pics to Kevin Korotev cuz he had succesfully bred them nowdays...
And he sead that there is hundreds of eggs scatered away... just like with normal aenus...
I will ask my friend to breed that black aenus and if he gets more of those(regarding the fish isn't sterile!) i will be completly sure that c.aenus black is in fact color variation of regular bronze cory, and this is just an marketing trick to earn more money on ppl ignorance...

The new Cory you mention Vedran could have been C.griseus. It certainly sounds very much like this Cory.
P.S. nice to see you back Adrian
