C. flaveolus is rare
in imports from the headwaters of the Sierra Piracicaba.
Placed in Lineage 6 which has always
been classified as Corydoras (Lacépède,
1803) so a new genus would need to be described and
a new type species when a revision is carried out.
Aquarium Care: This is akin to most
of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed
with small to medium sized tankmates such as Tetras,
Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding
purposes. Best to purchase 6 individuals or more as
they will be happier in a group. Diet:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and
good quality flake.
Brazil, Rio Piracica and the Rio Tiete near Salto
and Sao Paulo.
Male: 5.0cm (2ins) Female:
5.5cm (2¼ins) .
