Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Comatula carinata from East Africa varies very little, but specimens from the West Indies and Brazil are very variable, especially in regard to the carination of the arms. Six-rayed individuals also are common in the latter locality (A.H. Clark, 1908). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark This is possibly the same species as that called by Dr. Leach Alecto carinata in the previous year (A.H. Clark, 1908). [details]
