This species has a colour
pattern not unlike C.
Brazil and has beengiven the Corydoras
World number of CW039. Placed in Lineage
9, the "short-snouted" species with the
designated type species: C. punctatus. A
revision and a description 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 sized tankmates
such as Tetras, Rasboras and Danios or in a species
tank for breeding purposes. Best to purchase 6 individuals
or more as they will be happier in a group. Diet:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and
good quality flake.
