Was first given the code number
of C023 before description. Belongs to a group of
long-snouted species in which males exhibit a thickened
and bristled first pectoral fin ray. A variable species
which can show the black blotch on the body in different
sizes. Placed 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:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and
good quality flake.
Brazil, State of Mato Grosso, Rio Sarare, right affluent
