Astropecten platyacanthus

Astropecten platyacanthus
Description: Cres (Croatia) Young specimens of Astropecten platyacanthus sometimes can be confused with Astropecten jonstoni for the appearance and the colour, but it is always easy to distinguish them by very different superomarginal plates and superomarginal spines.
