Identification Corydoras froehlichi can be distinguished from Corydoras paleatus and similar corys by the presence of striated black spots from the snout tip to nuchal plate region, forming a somewhat marbled pattern (vs. spots, when present, conspicuously rounded or irregular, not forming a marbled pattern). Additionally, C. froehlichi can be distinguished from its most similar congeners by the absence of small plates on the ventral surface of the trunk (vs. presence), and by having markedly rounded snout (vs. relatively pointed snout).
Sexing Males have a lanceolate genital papilla (see Nijssen & Isbrücker, 1980; Britto, 2003). Like C. paleatus, male C. froehlichi also have dorsal-fin spine and odontodes more developed than females, and males' first and second dorsal-fin branched rays slightly surpassing dorsal-spine tip. Females are generally larger than males. In addition, presence of elongated pelvic fin in males, vs. shorter, rounded pelvic fins in females.
