Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomic remark "Fleming (1828) erected Comatuladae (refined to Comatulidae by d’Orbigny, 1852) to include the genus Comatula Lamarck, 1816. A.H. Clark (1908b) later fixed Comatula solaris Lamarck, 1816, as the type of Comatula. Clark used Comatulidae in 1908c, but subsequently (Clark, 1908a) changed it to Comasteridae (with no diagnosis). In 1931, A.H. Clark noted, with reference to his 1908a paper, ‘The family Comasteridae as understood in 1908 included the genera Comatula and Comaster. The generic name Comaster was taken as the basis for the family name, since Comatuladae or Comatulidae had been used with various meanings since 1828’ (page 81). This justification for a new family group name is invalid with reference to the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, and we see no option but to reinstate Comatulidae Fleming, 1828, as the family-group name" Summers et al. (2014, p. 334). [details]
