Another undescribed species
given the number by CorydorasWorld of CW118. This
species is similar looking to C.
the shape and position of the caudal peduncle spot
is different. It may turn out that this is a regional
variant of C. ourastigma. Placed in Lineage
1. 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 to name but a few.
Brazil, Rio Purus, State of Amazonas.
