Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus Clark (1946) and Hoggett & Rowe (1986) synonymize Plococidaris with Prionocidaris despite the very different spine morphology. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy New results by Brosseau et al. (2012) based on analysis of COI and 28 S sequences show that Stylocidaris is not closely related to Cidaris, but forms a clade of its own together with Acanthocidaris, Prionocidaris and Plococidaris. [details]
