a)Herschel/SPIRE 250 μm image of the B211/B213/L1495 region in Taurus. The light blue and purple curves show the crests of the B213 and B211 segments of the whole filament discussed in this paper, respectively. b) Display of optical and infrared polarization vectors from Heyer et al. (2008), Heiles (2000), and Chapman et al. (2011) tracing the magnetic field orientation in the B211/L1495 region, overlaid on our Herschel/SPIRE 250 μm image. The plane-of-the-sky projection of the magnetic field appears to be oriented perpendicular to the B211/B213 filament and roughly aligned with the general direction of the striations overlaid in blue. The green, blue, and black segments in the lower right corner represent the average position angles of the polarization vectors, low-density striations, and B211 filament, respectively.
