Taxonomy The taxonomic status of O. brunneus is uncertain, due to geographical and intra-specific variation in body colour, number of holes in buttons and by the presence of a zone of papillae surrounding the anterior part of the intestine.
Cherbonnier (1951) and Panning (1971) regarded records of O. brunneus from northern France to be based on juvenile specimens of O. planci (Brandt, 1835). [details]
