|Cat-eLog Data Sheet|
|Scientific Name||Corydoras sp. (C071)|
|Pronunciation||Kory DOOR ass|
|Etymology||Cory = helmet, doras = skin. In this case it was incorrectly used to mean armour (cuirasse) instead of skin in allusion to the dual rows of plates that run along the flanks of this genus.|
|Size||60mm or 2.4" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.|
|Identification||Corydoras are identified by their twin rows of armour plates along the flanks and by having fewer than 10 dorsal fin rays. They are most commonly confused with the other genera in the sub-family, namely Brochis, Scleromystax and Aspidoras.|
|Sexing||Females grow larger and are more full-bodied, this is best observed from above the fish. Males will typically have more pointed as opposed to more rounded fin tips as they mature.|
|Distribution||Upper Rio Arua which is a tributary to Rio Arapiuns that in turn is a tributary to Rio Tapajos, Brazil.
