This species was imported as
Brazil in the Lower Tapajós River basin and
has a colour pattern similar to Corydoras britoi
and Corydoraspavanelli, but differs
from both in having a black eye mask. Included in Lineage
8 (sub-clade 4) with the "intermediate long-snouts"
with deeper bodies. 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 good health.
Brazil, State of Par, Rio Tapajs, east of Jacareacanga.
Male: 6.5cm (2½ins)
