Notes:
This Ophiodes looks like the one cut in pieces I registered before (see https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/9067692) close to the spot where I found this individual, but this time I got a good look and pictures of a complete individual and, considering Machado et al (2017: https://doi.org/10.1670/17-007), I now doubt they are really O. intermedius. Both look more similar to O. striatus, but their know distribution is rather far away. So I wonder, could this possibly be a new species?
