Ophiocara species from the Indo-Pacific area are reviewed. Three species are recognized using genetic and morphomeristic approaches. The species differ by a high percentage of divergence (around 8%) in partial COI gene (446 bp) and by several characters including the number of scales in lateral, transverse backward, zigzag, and predorsal series, and the jaw length.
