A new sea-star of Coscinasterinae from Toyama Bay
Annotationes Zoologicae Japonenses
The new sea-star described in this paper belongs to Coscinasterinae and differs distinctly from the allied genera in having: inferomarginal spines without a cluster of attached crossed pedicellariae; superomarginal, inferomarginal as well as carinal plates bearing each an evident pebbling area on the surface; and much reduced ventrolateral plates. The new name Calasterias toyamensis is given for the new species.
