The first time I saw this Cory was in Werner Seuss´ Book "Corydoras? Seuss, 1993). This clear stripe pattern and the golden spot in the neck were looking very attractive. But this species seemed to be unavailable. C. parallelus has been known since the mid1980's, but is caught only very occasionally from the upper Rio Negro (the exact location is unknown). Most of them are usually exported to Japan (Evers 2005).
