scientific name

Ophioconis Lütken, 1869
status

 

Genus Ophioconis Lütken, 1869  

Ophioconis Lütken, 1869: 70   ; A. M. Clark 1965: 63–64.

Ophiurodon Matsumoto, 1915: 86   .

Ophiurodon   sp.— Mortensen 1940: 100.

Habitat: Coral-gravel and shells, 33 m ( Mortensen 1940).

Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman: Stiffe’s Bank (28) (ibid.).

Indian Ocean: n/a

Remarks: Ophiurodon   was synonymized with Ophioconis   by A. M. Clark (1965). Mortensen (1940) stated that his single specimen was in such a poor condition that he could not identify the species. Assuming that his generic identification was correct, this is the only record of Ophioconis   from the Persian Gulf. Three species of Ophioconis   are known from the Indian Ocean, O. permixta ( Clark 1965)   , O. cincta   and O. cupida ( Clark & Rowe 1971)   , although O. permixta   may be conspecific with O. cincta ( Clark 1965)   .
