|Scientific Name||Corydoras (lineage 9) granti Tencatt, Lima & Britto, 2019|
|Common Names||C020, Skunk Cory |
Arched Cory, Grants Buepansermalle (Denmark), Grants Cory, Stromlinienpanzerwelse (Germany)
|Type Locality||Igarapé Ya-Mirim (= Iazinho), a tributary to the Rio Cauaburi, itself a tributary to the Rio Negro, São Gabriel da Cachoeira, Amazonas, Brazil, 0° 16'19"N, 66°38'21"W.|
|Pronunciation||kor ee doh rass (lineage nine). - GRANT aye.|
|Etymology||Named in honor of Steven Grant, who previously analyzed the differences among the arc-striped corys and recognized C020 as a distinct species (published in the Journal of the Catfish Study Group).|
|Size||55mm or 2.2" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.|
|Identification||The colour pattern forms an even arch of dark stripe from the snout to the lower back. Sometimes the cleithrum will have an iridescent gold or bronze color. Corydoras granti is very similar to Corydoras arcuatus. C. granti can be distinguished by having a shorter, more rounded snout, whereas C. arcuatus has a longer straight snout. Also, the posterior margin of the pectoral fin spine of C. granti has serrations pointing toward the spine tip, whereas these serrations point toward the origin of the spine (toward the body) on C. arcuatus. Finally, when full grown, C. granti is a smaller species than C. arcuatus.|
|Sexing||Females larger and fuller bodied.|
|General Remarks||Corydoras granti is very similar to C. arcuatus , and specimens of C. granti are often sold by pet stores under the name C. arcuatus. A key to the arc-striped corys can be found in this forum thread. See also Grant, S. 2014. Journal of the Catfish Study Group (UK), 15(4), 24-29. The name C. granti was first published in a description of a Corydoras similar to C. nattereri. See Grant, S. 1996. New Species of Corydoras or hybrid/variation? Northern Area Catfish Group. The usage was later described, again by Grant, as tongue -in-cheek ("jokey") and so presumably not evaluated as a nomen nudem.|
