Type LocalityTrinidad Island, West Indies.Synonym(s)Callichthys aeneus, Corydoras macrosteus, Corydoras microps, Hoplosoma aeneumPronunciationKory DOOR ass - ah NAY ussEtymologyCory = 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. Latin aeneus, brazen, of copper.Jump to next section Species InformationSize75mm (3") SL Find near, nearer or same sized spp IdentificationCorydoras 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.

A very variable species See catfish of the month link below.
Occasionally confused with Brochis spp but can be distinguished fairly easily by the number of rays and shape of dorsal fin - Corydoras have less than ten rays, Brochis have ten or more rays.
SexingMales are smaller (up to 65mm) and slimmer

Females grow larger and are much wider which can most easily be observed from above.
