Corydoradinae Lineage 2

Small very active and "dull" species

Example species below: Aspidoras cf. spilotus.

This group is pretty clearly different from all other Corys. There are a few Aspidoras species that might not belong to this group and will be moved to other groups in the future. There are also 2 species belonging to Corydoras today that might be Aspidoras: Corydoras gladysae and Corydoras petrarcini.

To see all Corys in Lineage 2 that has been added to the database so far: Lineage 2 - Aspidoras group.

For an overview of all Lineages, explanations of the C- and CW-numbers, see this overview page: Corydoradinae Lineages.
