has been misidentified as this species in the past
but C. latus is very rare in the hobby. Included
in Lineage 8 (sub-clade 3) with the "intermediate
long-snouts" with deeper bodies. Aquarium
care: This is akin to most of this genus,
very peaceful, and would be best housed with small
to medium tank mates such as Tetras, Rasboras and
Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes.
Diet: A good quality flake food and
tablet food for adults with sporadic feedings of frozen
or live food will keep your Corydoras in
Lagoons, Lago Rogoagua, altitude 500-1500 ft. Type
locality: Lagoons, Lake Rogoagua [Bolivia].
Male: 6.0cm (2¼ins)
Female: 6.5cm (2½ins)
