Corydoras caudimaculatus – Tailspot Cory

C. caudimaculatus may be confused with the congener C. similis but can be told apart by possession of a well-defined, blackish spot on the caudal peduncle vs. a ‘smudged’ bluish marking.

C. guapore also has a comparable colour pattern but possesses a distinctly rounded snout and tends to swim above the substrate.
