Very similar to Corydoras
rabautiand are sometimes difficult to tell apart.
C.zygatus is a slimmer fish, not so colourful
and grows larger. The fry of each of these two has
proven that they are two separate Corydoras
species. (Fuller, 1980). Placed in Lineage 7 alongside
other members of the so called "aeneus group"
with the designated type species: C. eques.
A revision in the future would constitute the resurrection
of the genus name Osteogaster (Cope, 1871).
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
Peru; Loreto, Rio Huallaga system, creek, Yurimaguas.
Ecuador; Tributaries of the Rio Pastaza and Rio Tigre.
Type locality: Creek, Yurimaguas
Male: 6.5cm (2½ins)
Female: 7.0cm (2¾ins)
