Sympatric with C.
and others.Placed in Lineage 9,
the "short-snouted" species with the designated
type species: C. punctatus. A revision in
the future would constitute the resurrection of the
genus name Hoplosopma (Agassiz, 1846).
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
Brazil; Est. Amapá, Rio Oiapoque.
Male: 4.0cm (1½ins)
Female: 5.0cm (2ins)
