Similar looking to Corydoras
all from Northern Peru."Saddle nosed" species
which would place it in Lineage 1. When there is a
revision and a description 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 to name but a few.
Peru, Río Ucayali basin.
Male: 6.0cm (2½ins)
