Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology "Sternaspis spinosa Sluiter, 1882 has been in doubt ever since the original description because it was described and illustrated with long palp-like appendages; however, this type of appendage has not been reported for any other species ..." [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNeotype There is no original type material available (Petersen 2000:321), but Sluiter identified some other specimens from which one has been selected by Sendall & Salazar-Valejo (2013) as the neotype. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Sluiter (1882) formed the species epithet as 'spinosus' in the original description, but an adjectival change of ending to 'spinosa' is mandatorily required for gender agreement. Contemporaries, for example Selenka (1885:4), soon used Sternaspis spinosa. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Sluiter (1882) indicated the type locality as "Reede Batavia bei Tandjong Priok" [Batavia roadstead at Tandjong Priok]. The neotype was also collected by Sluiter, and comes from the same place, geolocated by gazetteer as -6.073645°, 106.881523° [details]
