    Was labelled C. rabauti but think it might be C. zygatus?

    Best is to check with one of the Facebook cory groups, Ian is the expert. BUT:

    A week ago I posted a few photos of new corydoras in the “US Corydoras Keepers” group,

    http://rainbow-fish.org/fishpic/craba/2.jpg
    (More photos in the same directory http://rainbow-fish.org/fishpic/craba )
    and Ian commented:

    Ian Fuller They are C. rabauti the band extends down into the lower lobe of the caudal and the band is matt (No sheen).

    My guesss is that the photo in Matt’s post is not a rabauti (band does not extend) Also the head shape seems different, but asaik zygatus head shape is identical to rabauti’s? so maybe something else?

    (I’m not a cory expert! And please do not blame me for the substrate in my photos either, the photos were taken in a lfs)

    From Ian Fuller:

    That;s C. rabauti, looks like a female.

    I did say I’m no expert! He is the person to ask.

    Never easy these two. The specimen has some intermediate characters but is likely a rabauti in my opinion. (I have kept and bred both). The first image in the profile of rabauti is a zygatus however.
