This is a quite unique Cory that attracted my interest when I read the Story about Corydoras ornatus, which was discovered in the 70's, but was never imported into the hobby until 2005. The few Corydoras ornatus that were caught were all sold to Japan for very high prices. The very similar undescribed short-nose species was coded C133 and may be similar to Corydoras bifasciatus, which was originally described from the same area. Pictures of preserved Corydoras bifasciatus look very similar to C 133. The trade offered them as 'Ornatus short nose'. For the whole story refer to Graf (2007).
