Corydoradinae Lineage 5
"elegans" Group

Wedge-shaped heads

Example species below: Corydoras sp. CW044.

This group contains species known as the ‘elegans’ group. During a revision the genus name Gastrodermus could be resurrected, with the designated type species Corydoras elegans. C. gracilis is the basal species in this group and Aspidoras pauciradiatus belongs to this lineage rather than Aspidoras (Lineage 2).
