Comments are included on Ophiothrix (Keystonia) propinqua Lyman - transferred to the genus Macrophiothrix, some other anomalous specimens of Macrophiothrix, variations found in Ophiothela venusta (de Loriol) and O. tigris Lyman, a modification of certain podia in Ophiocoma pusilla (Brock) and the synonymy of paracrocnida sacensis (Balinsky) with P. oersica (Mortensen).
