status

 

Ophiura (Ophiura) mundata ( Koehler, 1906a)  

Reports for the Azores:

non Ophioglypha irrorata Lyman, 1878   — $ Koehler 1896b: 241 [misidentification];

Ophioglypha mundata, Koehler, 1906   a— $ Koehler 1909: 153, pl. 27, figs. 7–8;

Ophiura (Ophiuroglypha) mundata ( Koehler, 1906a)   — Mortensen 1933a: 88–89, figs. 48d–e, pl. 3, figs. 11–12;

Ophiura (Ophiura) mundata ( Koehler, 1906a)   — Paterson 1985: 127–128, fig. 48; Smirnov et al. 2014: 205;

Ophiura mundata Koehler, 1906   — García-Diez et al. 2005: 49.

Type locality: waters between Canaries and NW Africa   .

See: Koehler (1906a: 10–11, pl. 1, figs. 4–6, as Ophioglypha mundata   ); Paterson (1985).

Occurrence: North Atlantic, from Labrador Basin eastwards to Iceland ( Paterson 1985) and south from the Bay of Biscay to Morocco, including the Azores and Canaries ( Koehler 1906b, 1909).

Depth: 1,674–4,315 m ( Smirnov et al. 2014); AZO   : 1,919–4,020 m ( Koehler 1909).

Habitat: soft substrates ( Koehler 1909).

Remarks: the great similarity between Ophiura mundata   and O. irrorata ( Lyman, 1878)   has led to doubtful identifications ( Koehler 1896b), and they have been considered conspecific ( Koehler 1914a). A taxonomic revision is needed to clear up the confusion ( Paterson 1985).
