From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis A species of Stephanometra with brachitaxis ossicles weakly swollen laterally or with thick rounded ridge-like extensions oriented obliquely to longitudinal axis of ray. Middle and distal cirrals aborally carinate or with small spine distally. P1 slender, tapering delicately to a conical tip; P2 alone or P2 and following 1–3 pinnules of elongated pinnulars with reduced ambulacral groove, a conical terminal segment, and flattened articulations lacking triangular fossae. Specimens with enlarged, stiff and spinelike P2 alone formerly treated as S. indica; with enlarged P2 and P3 as S. spicata (Carpenter); with enlarged P2 through P4 or P5 as S. oxyacantha (Hartlaub), and with spinelike P1 as S. spinipinna (Hartlaub). [details]
