Type locality Northern Atlantic; Davis Strait. 845 - 1715 fathoms. (‘Ingolf’- Expedition) [details]
Type locality This is a large species like P. Jefreysi, from which it is easily distinguished by the shape of the test; it is somewhat more elongate and slender than in that species, and slopes gently towards the posterior end, not produced over the periproct. An abactinal keel may be slightly developed in younger specimens, in larger specimens there is almost no trace of such a keel. The structure of the test otherwise as in P. Jefreysi. The primary abactinal spines of the antero-lateral ambulacra very long, Curved and bent backwards over the test, reaching almost to the posterior end of it; they are rather coarsely thorny. Also the pedicellariae show some minor differences from those of P. Jefreysi. [details]

Synonymy Mortensen (1950: p. 144-145) has Pourtalesia wandeli tentatively in the synonymy of P. miranda, but states in the discussion that "they cannot be identical, judging from the beautiful figures in the Revision of the Echini, Pl. XVIII" [details]
