Taxonomy Flabesymbios commensalis (Moore, 1909) and Flabesymbios roberti Salazar-Vallejo, 2012 "both live between sea urchins spines and share several morphological features to hold themselves on the urchin. They differ in pigmentation patterns and in the host sea urchin genus they inhabit; thus, F. commensalis has a basically bicolored body, with a darker back and sides and a pale venter, and lives on Strongylocentrotus, whereas F. roberti is homogeneously dark brown or black, including the venter, and lives on Centrostephanus."
Flabelligera haerens Chamberlin, 1919: "since there are no significant different characters stated in the original description nor in the type specimen, Flabelligera haerens is regarded as a subjective junior synonym of F. commensalis." [details]
