Etymology: Corydoras: Greek, kory = helmet + greek, doras = skin (Ref. 45335);  diphyes: Specific name from Greek 'diphyes', meaning of double nature, in reference to the unique variation in color patterns expressed in this species, striped and blotchy.  More on authors: Axenrot & Kullander.

Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Vertebre: 18 - 19. Relatively low scute numbers (dorsal/ventral row, 23-24/20-21, pre-adipose scutes 2-4, usually 3), series of 4-6 distinct spots or a continuous midlateral band along the middle of the side instead of 2-3 large dark blotches; dorsal and pectoral fins not elongated in either sex; distinct stripes in dorsal and caudal fins (Ref. 52874).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Usually occurs in areas with sandy bottom, bank vegetation entering water or with marginal aquatic plants, dark, clear or slightly turbid water and limited associated fauna (Ref. 52874). Mimicked by Otocinclus mimulus; (Ref. 52874). Mimicry is unusual because the two species occupy different microhabitats and it is hypothesized to operate with a primarily visual predator moving between the microhabitats, tentatively identified as the cichlid Crenicichla lepidota (Ref. 52874).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01585 (0.00657 - 0.03821), b=2.99 (2.79 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
