Abstract

We document the 1st records of the Pacific Snake Eel, Ophichthus triserialis, from washed-up specimens on the coast of Oregon. One specimen, with a damaged head region, was found near a public beach in Lincoln City, Lincoln County, Oregon, on 21 January 2017. We discuss another specimen found on a beach near Bandon, Coos County, Oregon, in March 2016.
