Description Differences in spine and plate shapes and in colour paterns separate the species, but reliable identification in the field is not really possible (Richmond, 1998). The tendency of young Ophiothrices is to have thorny radial shields, even when these are naked in fully grown species (Lyman, 1874). [details]

From editor or global species database
Type designation Original type designation O. rosula by Lyman (1865). H.L. Clark (1915) synonymized O. rosula with O. pentaphyllum (Pennant, 1777) which may have caused later authors to accept the latter name as type species. A.M. Clark (1967) proposed to suppress pentaphyllum in favour of the more widely applied name fragils. That proposal seems never to have been decided and technically, O. pentaphyllum has priority. See also under species O. fragilis. [details]
