Status As defined by Mintz (1968: p. 1287), the order Disasteroida would include the genera Disaster L. Agassiz, 1836 and Acrolusia Lambert, 1920. A recent phylogenetic analysis by Barras (2007: p. 150) confirms the close relationship of the two taxa, but shows that they are stem-group members of the order Spatangoida and that the order Disasteroida is paraphyletic.  [details]
