Quinze especes de comatules, appartenant a 11 genres et quatre familles, recoltees en octobre 1991, entre 180 et 800 m, lors de la campagne franco-indonesienne KARUBAR aux iles Kai et Tanimbar (Indonesie) sont decrites en detail. Les echantillons recoltes forment la collection de comatules bathyales la plus importante faite dans la region durant la seconde moitie du XXeme siecle. Le materiel etudie ici comprend quatre especes de Cosmateridae, une d'Asterometridae, deux de Calomatridae et huit… 
Phylogeny of Comatulidae (Echinodermata: Crinoidea: Comatulida): a new classification and an assessment of morphological characters for crinoid taxonomy.
A molecular phylogenetic analysis of the group with concatenated data from up to seven genes for 43 nominal species spanning 17 genera and all subfamilies concluded that DNA sequence data currently provides the most reliable method of identification to the species-level for many taxa of Comatulidae.
Three new species of Comasteridae (Echinodermata, Crinoidea) from the tropical western Pacific
Three new species of unstalked crinoids (Echinodermata, Crinoidea) belonging to the comasterid genera Comactinia A. H. Clark, 1909, Capillaster A. H. Clark, 1909 and Cenolia A. H. Clark, 1916 from
Revising Mariametridae: the genera Dichrometra, Lamprometra, and Liparometra (Echinodermata: Crinoidea)
Molecular data supported a monophyletic grouping, which is placed under the senior generic name Dichrometra, based on a level of intraspecies divergence similar to that in other featherstar taxa, with four distinct species-level clades.
Species delimitation and distribution in Aporometra (Crinoidea : Echinodermata): endemic Australian featherstars
A suite of characters identified using data from scanning electron microscopy and mtDNA sequencing and the results support the monophyly of Aporometra and the presence of two species, A. wilsoni and A. occidentalis.
The Crinoid Fauna (Echinodermata: Crinoidea) of Palau
A submersible survey and a recent survey using scuba recovered five additional new records, four of which are the first representatives of their families from Palauan waters: Eudiocrinus venustulus (Eudiocrinidae), Glyptometra sp.
Comanthus kumi , a new shallow-water comatulid (Echinodermata: Crinoidea: Comatulida: Comasteridae) from the Ryukyu Islands, Japan
The new species concealed its whole body in a crevice or small hole on coral reefs during the day and protruded only several elongate arms on the reef surface at night, which suggests that the new species is nocturnal.
Shallow-water Comatulids (Echinodermata: Crinoidea: Comatulida) of the Ashizuri-Uwakai Sea, Shikoku Island, Southern Japan
A faunal investigation of shallow-water (<50 m) comatulids of the Ashizuri-Uwakai Sea, Shikoku Island, southern Japan was performed between mid-2011 and early 2015, using scuba. It revealed that 30
Re-evaluation of the systematics of two deep-sea species of Thalassometra (Echinodermata: Crinoidea) and its biogeographical implications
A new description of Thalassometra bispinosa is provided, including these new specimens, and the affinities with closely related species are discussed and hypotheses of their geographical distribution are proposed.
A new species of five-armed feather star, Pentametrocrinus paucispinulus n. sp., from the eastern Pacific (echinodermata: Crinoidea: Comatulida)
Pentametrocrinus paucispinulus, new species, is described from a specimen collected on Pioneer Seamount off California in 1768 m, the first record of the genus from the eastern Pacific Ocean.
Extant Crinoidea (Echinodermata) of Singapore
The crinoid fauna of Singaporean waters now includes approximately 39 nominal species belonging to six families, all in Order Comatulida, which is definitely a new record for Singapore.
