Material Examined. USNM 1072476View Materials, Anton Bruun Cruise 8 Station 394B, off Durban, 29° 27’ S, 31° 31’ E, 68– 70 m, 29 September, 1964, 3 specimens plus arm fragments of a 4thGoogleMaps  . USNM 1072575View Materials, Anton Bruun Cruise 8 Station 403E, off Mozambique, 19° 09’ S, 36° 55’ E, 88 m, 2 specimens, 9 October 1964GoogleMaps  . USNM 1233996View Materials, Anton Bruun Cruise 8 Station 394A, Off Durban, South Africa, 29° 26’ S, 31° 32’ E, 68 m, 25 September 1964, 1 specimenGoogleMaps  .

Remarks. Two specimens from Station 394B are very large (dd. 76 and dd. 81 mm) and are typical of the species ( Fig. 22A –BView FIGURE 22). A medium-sized specimen (dd. 30 mm) is uniformly covered with fine pustules and occasional larger ones ( Fig. 22C –EView FIGURE 22). The arms are bifurcated 16–17 times and carry girdle bands after the first branch. Otherwise the description matches that in Baker, (1980 p. 66) of material from the eastern Indian Ocean.

Distribution. Originally described from USFCAbout USFC Albatross material from the Philippines, this shallow water basket star is widely distributed in the Indo-Malaysian region, and in the east China Sea in 73–300m depth ( Baker, 1980), and its occurrence off Durban and further north off Mozambique, is not unexpected.
