Not all have that long. Browse the listed photos on planet cat, this one especially is near identical.

Trilineatus do not have that long or narrow of a snout, and neither do julii.

C. Gomezi had a similar look, but even more rare.

You are on there?
What's your user name?

It almost looks like a Brochis species. IMO.
But I doubt it.

I have my bet on leopardus.

The problem with corydoras is that there are several species that have look alikes, with very subtle differences which combined with natural variation can make it very hard to identify the correct species.

Thank you very much to all. This is cool!
Here are better images of the same fish, taken this weekend. Don't know if this help on the id'ing. On the other hand, I had not notice the design on the very forehead. Neat-O.
Also, with its friend, Brochis cf. multiradiatus, which of course, decided to put down its dorsal fin for the picture. Oh well...

I like to think my little cory looks like a female, even though I don't have a view from above.
Agree, disagree...
