Down Cat-eLog Data Sheet
Scientific Name Corydoras (lineage 7) sp. `LLANOS`   
Common Name
Pronunciation kor ee doh rass (lineage seven).
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. 
Down Species Information
Identification This species is almost never exported from Venezuela despite being prevalent in the Llanos. Because it is very dark to black in the flanks, it has been confused with the line-bred black strain of Corydoras schultzei.
Sexing Males are smaller and slimmer. Females grow larger and are much wider which can most easily be observed from above.
