From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy In the current Linnean system Ophiuroidea is regarded as a class. Following a more phylogenetic view its parent would be Asterozoa according to a popular hypothesis. However, according to another equally parsimonious view, Ophiuroidea and Asteroidea are not sister taxa, which invalidates Asterozoa as their parent. [details]
