Similar looking to CW047
and is the long snouted version of C. sanchesi..
Placed it in Lineage 1, 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:
A good quality flake food and tablet food for adults
with sporadic feedings of frozen or live food will
keep your Corydoras in good health.
Suriname, Coppename and Nickerie River basins.
Type locality: Creek at right bank of Coppename
River (3º52'30"N, 56º53'W), Saramacca,
Male 6.0cm (2¼ins) Female
