Hi RC23,

Welcome to PlanetCatfish!

These corys are Corydoras(Ln9) atropersonatus. You can distinguish C. atropersonatus from Corydoras(ln8sc4) sychri by the shape of the snout - C. atropersonatus has a blunt snout (lineage 9 corys), whereas C. sychri has a straight snout (lineage 8, subgroup 4 corys).

Cheers, Eric
