Brief SummaryRead full entry
A key to the species of Corydoras is not available at this moment, but somebooks like Burgess (1987) or Burgess (1989) present good pictures of most species which, associated with locality data, allow a reliable identification in most instances. Also, for a few regions in South America, there exist some taxonomic reviews, like Nijssen (1970) for Surinam, Nijssen & Isbrücker (1983) for Colombia and Nijssen & Isbrücker (1986) for Peru and Ecuador. Several species, however, have been described since the publicationof the above reviews. Consult the CompleteCatalogue and the List of Original Literature for an updated list of species and publications containing descriptions of new species.
