Corydoradinae Lineage 8
Brochis et. al.

A very complex group with four Sub-clades

Example species below: Corydoras cf. crypticus (from sub-clade 4).

Lineage 8 contains mainly the long snouted but deep bodied species, but also includes Brochis, that was recently synonymized with Corydoras (Britto, 2003). The name Brochis would most likely be resurrection during a revision, with the designated type species Brochis splendens. There are also 3 more sub-clades that would need new names.

To see all Corys in Lineage 8 that has been added to the database so far: Lineage 8 - Brochis et al.
