Taxonomy According to Hess (2011, p. 154-155), "A. H. Clark (in Zittel, 1913, p. 230) recorded and characterized the genus and included it (A. H. Clark, 1915b) in a key to the genera of the Bourgueticrinidae. Seven species were indicated, but not by name. A. H. Clark (1915a in 1915–1950) assigned Bathycrinus caribbeus A. H. Clark (1908g) and B. paradoxus A. H. Clark (1909g) to this genus. He diagnosed it (A. H. Clark, 1917b, p. 390) and briefly described the type species, M. sexradiatus, but later offered a full description of the type as a new species (A. H. Clark, 1923b, p. 19). According to Jagt (1999a, p. 131), none of the Santonian–Maastrichtian species tentatively assigned by Rasmussen (1961) to Monachocrinus belongs in this genus. According to Roux (1977b, p. 28), M. recuperatus is the most typical of the genus. According to Mironov (2008, p. 148) pinnules with rows of large covering plates bordering the ambulacral groove are characteristic of bathycrinids."

Hess (2011) cites the date of authorship of the genus as 1917, but, as he noted, the genus was first diagnosed in 1913, though with no species designated. [details]
