Poupin, Starmer, sample LC42 (photo), LC43, St. MQ16-M, Fatu Hiva, intertidal, coll. Corbari et al., sample LC156 (photos). Difference between this species, described from the Marquesas, and O. rugulosus must be explicited as the two species are very similar and have never been compared (especially in Rathbun's description of O. tricarinatus).
