Weitschataster intermedius gen. and sp. nov., is described from Upper Campanian (Upper Cretaceous) of Hannover (Lower Saxony, Germany). The new species is characterized by its conspicuous rimmed pedicellariae scars covering almost the complete actinal surface and by small body size. W. intermedius represents a transitional state between W. decipiens comb. nov. from the Lower Campanian and the well-known W. undulatus comb. nov. from the Lower Maastrichtian of NW Europe. Among Spencer's types of W. undulatus , one paratype is recognized as belonging to the genus Parametopaster .
