Status This species is based on an indeterminate fragment which definitifely does not derive from a strongylocentrotid, or any regular euechinoid at all. Based on tubercle morphology and arrangement the fragment appears to come from the oral antero-lateral interambulacra of an spatangoid (probably a loveniid or spatangid). [details]

Original description allied to S. purpuratus Stimpson 1857 from which it differs in possessing tubercles that are all more or less of uniform size, depth is 10 mm. [details]

Status This species is based on an indeterminate fragment which definitifely does not derive from a strongylocentrotid, or any regular euechinoid at all. Based on tubercle morphology and arrangement the fragment appears to come from the oral antero-lateral interambulacra of an spatangoid (probably a loveniid or spatangid). [details]
