Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution The distribution of O. bradyi in the Dutch part of the North Sea is very patchy. Highest densities are found in the eastern part, near the German Bight. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat O. bradyi lives in all kinds of sediment, from coarse to very fine sand, often associated with mud. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology O. bradyi can grow up to 12 mm long. lt has a carapace with an acute pseudorostrum (Jones, 1976; Hayward & Ryland, 1990). [details]
