Described along with C.
kanei by the
author [Grant, S] as aquarium specimens. Placed in
Lineage 8 sub clade 4 which comprises
the "intermediate long-snouts" with deeper
bodies. It also includes Brochis in sub-clade
1 which was synonymised with Corydoras by
Britto in 2003 but in time there will be a revision
which will resurrect Brochis (Cope, 1871)
to full genera again. 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
good quality flake.
Brazil; Roraima State near Boa Vista, possibly from
the Rio Branco.
