Similar to C.
has a different colour pattern to these three. 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: 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
good health. Remarks: Was given the
C-number of C025 when first discovered and first appeared
in the German magazine DATZ in September 1995.
