Asteroidea taxon details

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorCulcita Agassiz, 1836

204844  (urn:lsid:marinespecies.org:taxname:204844)

accepted
Genus
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGoniodiscides Fisher, 1906 (Synonym according to Fisher (1919))
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGoniodiscus Müller & Troschel, 1842 (Formal designation of type species G. sebae falls in syn. of C. novaeguineae. This disposes of the name Goniodiscus by synonymy. However many of the species names are referable to Goniasteridae and/or Oreasteridae)
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorRandasia luzonica Gray, 1840 (An immature Culcita according to Fisher (1919) but by inference, type was not traced.)
