|Identification||This species was described in 1872 with no picture or drawing and a couple of paragraphs of text. The author notes, "Straw color, with numerous indefinite brown spots on the sides. Dorsal fin with a large black spot covering anterior half, which also expands on the dorsal region round the base of the fin. Four vertical brown bands on caudal fin; anal spotted. Cheeks with blue reflections". In short, it should have no black marking in the top half of the dorsal fin and in particular the dorsal fin spine. Otherwise very similar to Corydoras agassizi.|
