Holothuroidea - Priscopedatidae
It was assigned to Dendrochirotida by Sepkoski (2002); and to Priscopedatidae by Kozur and Sadeddin (1990) and Al-Tamimi and Saqqa (2008).
If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.
|H. Kozur and W. Sadeddin 1990||Sieve-plates each with large central pore that is largely or totally covered by a robust conical stirrup with 4 feet. Between 2 and 13 small pores surround the central pore, but in some specimens these pores are quite missing. The outline of the sclerites is variable: triangular, cross-shaped, irregularly rectangular, pentagonal or quite irregular. Three to eight mostly long marginal spines are present. In very rare forms with strongly lobate outline only 1-2 spines can be observed|
