Material examined. Okinawa Island (RUMF-ZE-02072[1], RUMF-ZE-02073[1], RUMF-ZE-02074[1]): “entrance” of the “Hedo Dome” cave, under rocks or coral rubble, approximately 18 m depth, 10 August 2016 (RUMF-ZE-02072, RUMF-ZE-02073), 22 May 2017 (RUMF-ZE-02074). Ie Island (RUMF-ZE-02075[1]): “entrance” of the “Unnamed cave”, under coral rubles, approximately 18 m depth, 24 June 2017   . Shimoji Island (RUMF-ZE-02085[1]): “second slope” of the “Akuma no Yakata” cave, under coral rubble, approximately 20 m depth, 31 August 2017   .

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

Remarks. This specimen is identified as Ophiarachnella gorgonia   by virtue of having: disc covered by dense granules except elongate radial shields; supplementary oral shields large, often equalling the oral shields in width (e.g. A. M. Clark & Rowe, 1971).
