Corydoras: Top rarities from Colombia

We obtained a number of sample specimens (only one specimen per species) of Corydoras from the Rio Vaupes in Colombia. Some of them are real rarities, others are better known already. One of the well-known species is Corydoras osteocarus. This species cannot be confused with any other Corydoras. The species attains a maximum length of about 5 cm.
 
Corydoras sp. CW 49 is a very pretty individual variety of the species C. sp. CW 51. The latter is currently quite often imported. It attains a length of about 6 cm.
 
Corydoras sp. CW 107 reminds one strongly in Corydoras davidsandsi. We think that CW 107 belongs to the very same species as Corydoras sp. CW 91.
 
The long snouted sibling species to CW 107 is Corydoras sp. CW 106. This fish belongs most probably to the same species as Corydoras sp. CW 89.
 
Corydoras evelynae is one of the most wanted species of Corydoras, but hardly ever available. The appearance of this species in Colombia has been published by Mojica et al. (2005): Peces de la Cuenca del Rio Amazonas en Colombia: Region de Leticia. Bioto Combiana 6 (2): 191-210. C. evelynae has been described from the upper Amazon in Brazil initially.
 
The most sensational species is for sure a Corydoras that looks quite similar to a group of Corydoras known so far from Peru only: Corydoras fowleri, C. coriatae, and C. semiaquilus. In fact, C. semiaquilus is listed for Colombia by Mojica et al.. However, our recently imported fish looks quite different from what we know as the "Peru Black", which has been identified as Corydoras semiaquilus until now. So we think that a lot of research has still to be done.
 
Sadly all these Corydoras are very expensive and so they will hardly appear in near future in good numbers in the ornamental fish market. But it is nevertheless good to know that such beauties exist.
