Hi everyone. Been away for a while but I thought this may be of interest to some of you. There has been a reshuffling of the genus and new genus' added. These are:
Corydoras
Aspidoras
Schleromystax
Gastrodermus - this is the old Elegans group
Osteogaster - this is the old Aeneus group
Brochis - A few newbies added to the genus, including arcuatus
Hoplisoma - this now includes many of the popular species like Julii.

There's a detailed list here and a quick summary explaining it. It's interesting, but I now need a new notebook :Humpf:

They'll always be Cory's to me and the shops will never change.

I'm going to extremely irritating (that's more so than ever :grin:) and use the old names only.

It appears I no longer have Corydoras but have Hoplisoma.
They have changed Brochis species to Corydoras and now back to Brochis.
It gets confusing.
I bet the LFS will continue to mis-label their fish which makes it even more confusing.
