Similar in colour pattern including its variations to C. parallelus, a species coming from the upper Rio Negro drainage. CW127 is 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 Hoplosoma (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 good health.
