This is a further new species of Corydoras from the Madre de Dios region. The species attains a maximum length of about 4-5 cm. Males and females look very different. Whereas the males have a coloration similar to that of C. elegans, the females imitate the C. aeneus “Madre de Dios”. In contrast to many other species of Corydoras, this species often swims free in the water column.
