Description: Antiparos (Greece)
Detail of Astropecten platyacanthus’s superomarginal spines (more or less) far from the inside edge of plates. They leave on top, on the base of them, a small bare area that it is white if there is a strong spine in the plate (usually in the plates near the disc) or blue-violet if the plate has very small spine or no spine (usually towards the tip of arms).
