A review of high-latitude Goniasteridae south of 50oS is presented, including a key to species, figures and taxonomic descriptions of all species with a brief taxonomic summary for all genera. Nineteen species in 11 genera are reviewed. Eratosaster jenae nov. gen and sp., Chitonaster trangae nov. sp., and Pillsburiaster calvus nov. sp. are described. Several taxa, including Chitonaster, have not been reviewed since their initial description and revision of the group has clarified taxonomic… 

New species and global revision of Hippasteria (Hippasterinae: Goniasteridae; Asteroidea; Echinodermata)

Three new species of Hippasteria, rooted against Evoplosoma, are described from deep-water settings, and discussions about biogeography, cladogenic events, and morphology are presented.

Three new records of deep-water goniasterids (Echinodermata: Asteroidea: Goniasteridae) from China seas

In this paper, three deep-water species of the family Goniasteridae, Ceramaster misakiensis (Goto, 1914), Nymphaster arthrocnemis Fisher, 1913 and Pontioceramus grandis Fisher, 1911, are recorded for

Species composition of sea stars (Echinodermata: Asteroidea) in the Patagonian Argentinian deep sea, including seven new records: connectivity with sub-Antarctic and Antarctic fauna

The main target of this paper is to improve the knowledge of the species composition of sea stars in Patagonian Argentine deep sea reaching depths of 2062 m. In addition, these results offer us the

Global Diversity and Phylogeny of the Asteroidea (Echinodermata)

Diversity and phylogeny as they have figured into the evolution of the Asteroidea from Paleozoic to the living fauna is presented, as well as brief notes on broader significance, ecology, and functional morphology of each.

Southern Ocean Asteroidea: a proposed update for the Register of Antarctic Marine Species

The Antarctic zone defined by this dynamic and community-based tool has been investigated with a particular interest and more than 13,000 occurrences records of Asteroidea (Echinodermata) have been compiled and checked against the RAMS species list of sea stars, using WoRMS Taxon Match tool.

Mites on Plants

Pondering imponderables may not be scientific, but all hypotheses have to start somewhere. When Terry Erwin (1982) published his estimate of 30 million living species of arthropods, up to 20 times

Diversity and phylogeography of Southern Ocean sea stars (Asteroidea)

Comment les especes sont-elles distribuees sur les fonds marins de l’Ocean Austral ? Quels sont les facteurs qui peuvent expliquer leur distribution ? Ces questions, centrales en macroecologie sont
