Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Type data: status undetermined Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris (France). Type locality: 'Isle de France [Mauritius](Rowe & Gates, 1995).
Also recorded from 'Coin Peros' by Bell (1909) - locality can't be traced. O. erinaceus Müller & Troschel and O. alternans von Martens were also treated as a synonym of O. scolopendrina in Ludwig (1899), but that has long been disproven.

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colour in life: very varied, dorsal disc uniformly black to pale brown to black variegated pattern, dorsal arm plates brown or paler brown regions several segments wide (Humphreys, 1981), ventral disc is light coloured or variegated, never uniformly dark.
Description: arm length to 13 cm, disc diameter to 20 mm. Disc surface with fine rounded granules, extending into a V-shaped interradial area orally. Aboral arm plates broader than long, narrower on one side. Arm spines alternating three and four, stout, uppe ones shorter and club-shaped. Arms irregularly banded, conspicuously extended by otherwise hidden animals to collect food particles from the water surface on flooding tides. Habitat: upper and middle eulittoral, in crevices and under boulders.
Also distributed in Gilbert Islands, Tuamotus, Fiji, Guam, Saipan, Solomon Islands, New Guinea (Clark, 1954); SE Arabia, Persian Gulf, Maldive area, Ceylon, Bay of Bengal, East Indies, north Australia, Philippine, China, south Japan, South Pacific Is. and Hawaiian Is.
