Taxonomy Primary spines with "hairy" aspect of the cortex in Ctenocidarids were interpreted as infected by Echinophyces mirabilis, a microorganism living in the stereom
of the spines, which was tentatively identified as a fungus. [...] Recently, Lockhart (2006, unpubl. molecular data from 18S ribosomal gene) demonstrated that specimens formerly attributed to the effect of the parasite—were actually not phylogenetically related to “normal” specimens of their respective species, but to each other. Consequently, she erected the genus Miracidaris to gather those “transformed” specimens, casting doubt upon the supposed effects of E. mirabilis. [...] Lockhart has, however, also clearly said that E. mirabilis exists and is a symbiont (putatively a parasite) on the primary spines of representatives of several species. [details]
