I have found a stripy member of the Opheliidae off the West coast of Ireland in sandy gravel.. It appears to be a member of the Opelina genus but doesn't match any descriptions. It have a stripe over the dorsum and a spot over each area where the branchiae were (I presume they fell off).

Has anybody ever found another stripy  Opheliidae?

Best regards
