From editor or global species database
Synonymy The synonymy between O. galangaui and O. lobularis is doubtful. O. galagaui could either be synonym of O. tuberculata. The type specimen of O. galangaui has disapeared. [details]

Taxonomic remark Until 1992, the two Mediterranean species O. lobularis & O. tuberculata were not distinguished. All citation of O. lobularis before this date have to be taken with caution [details]
