Ophiuroidea note details
Belloc (1950) gives Ophiura rufescens as original name for Ophiotreta valenciennesi var. rufescens with authority Hérouard, 1909, but this source cannot be found. Instead, Koehler redescribed O. rufescens in 1909. Hérouard worked on holothuroids. Most likely, the combination Ophiura rufescens is a misprint.
