From editor or global species database
Synonymy As remarked in Hotchkiss & Clark (1976: 266, footnote), the earlier family name Asteropsidae, used once by Perrier (1884: 154) is invalidated by his mistaken concept of the genus Asteropsis Muller & Troschel, 1842, omitting the type species, Asterias carinifera Lamarck, 1816.  [details]
