Status Bather (1934 […]) has established a new species of Sternopatagus, St. sinensis, without giving any real diagnosis of it. So far as I can gather it must be based essentially on PI. XXXV.a. 2 of the "Challenger" Echini […] It is thus a possibility that the "Cystechinus clypeatus" from the "Challenger" St. 205 may be a Sternopatagus; but on account of the great confusion and the lack of accuracy in Agassiz' description of this "species" it is impossible now to clear out the matter. […] Perhaps a reexamination of the fragments preserved in the British Museum might give the solution, but Clark in his Catalogue (1925, p. 186) does not give it. Bather's Sternopatagus sinensis must remain problematic until new finds give the solution of the problem. [details]
