Ophioelegans cincta . James 1981: 15 –17, pl. 1A; 1989: 112.

Ophiolepis garretti Lyman 1861: 77 , 78; 1865: 61–62, pl. 2 fig. 4.

Material examined. Ie Island (RUMF-ZE-02057[1], RUMF-ZE-02058[1]): “Unnamed cave”, “entrance” of the cave, under coral rubble, approximately 18 m depth, 24 June 2017.

Distribution. Widely distributed in Indo-West Pacific. Depth range 0– 278 m.

Remarks. This specimen is identified as Ophiolepis cincta by virtue of having: symmetrically arranged disc scales, larger ones surrounding smaller ones regularly, on aboral disc; small supplementary plates forming transverse row on distal edge of each dorsal arm plate (e.g. A. M. Clark & Rowe, 1971).
