Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Antedonidae with centrodorsal conical, not higher than wide, with sockets in 10 columns, separated interradially by naked, shallow groove. Proximal brachials smooth, cylindrical, and not in lateral contact. Single known specimen has 14 arms; synarthry between primibrachials 1 and 2; secundibrachials with an axil at second or fourth ossicle or undivided; placement of syzygies depends on whether the secundibrachial series is part of the undivided arm (syzygy between secundibrachials 3 and 4) or terminates in an axil and ray division (no syzygy between secundibrachials 3 and 4). [details]
