From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Agassiz (1872, Revision of the Echini) mentions "Lütken, MS" as author of the species. According to ICZN regulations (Article 50.1 and 50.1.1.), however, Agassiz (1872) is to be regarded as author of the taxon. [details]
