If I recall correctly we got the Crenuchus from near Santa Isabel do Rio Negro. The ones from the trade were labelled as coming from Venezuela. See http://www.aquariumglaser.com/en/archiv.php?news_id=679. The upper Rio Negro and Orinoco are joined, so many species are shared between the two. There's only one described species of Crenuchus (C. spilurus), but due to the wide distribution and variation, I'd imagine it's a complex of species.joemc wrote:I wondered where that form (maybe species?) of Crenuchus spilurus was found, if was offered for sale here last year, but no catch location

the imported specimen of "Aspidoras" pauciradiatus all originate from Rio Negro region as far as I know.racoll wrote:I noticed that too. Perhaps the cory people can suggest a better match?MatsP wrote: A. pauciradiatus is a "long way from home".
It is not clear if the type locality is correct, it seems that no "Aspidoras" pauciradiatus can be found there.
The cory that you caught is what we aquaristists consider to be "Aspidoras" pauciradiatus although it is more than doubtful that it is really an Aspidoras species.
