Scientific Name Corydoras (lineage 7) sp. (Cw014)   
Common Names CW014, Red Stripe Cory
CW023, Orange Stripe Cory, Orangestribet Pansermalle (Denmark)
Pronunciation kor ee doh rass (lineage seven).
Etymology Cory = helmet, doras = skin. In this case it was incorrectly used to mean armour (cuirasse) instead of skin in allusion to the dual rows of plates that run along the flanks of this genus.

Identification CW014 (red stripe) was determined on specimens that had been kept over black substrate, which darkened the fish giving them a red stripe. Over normal, lighter, substrate the stripe is orange (CW023). This was only discovered after the CW numbers were issued. We know now, CW014 = CW023. These are not the same and should not be confused with CW010, the 'gold laser'.
Sexing Males are smaller and slimmer. Females grow larger and are much wider which can most easily be observed from above.
