Original description "The genus Calymne cannot be referred to either of the two families named [Pourtalesiidae and Urechinidae], differing from the Urechinidae in having the plate 2 of the anterior interambulacra paired, from the Pourtalesiidae in having no oral invagination and from the Ananchytidae in having simple pores. It must then, evidently, form a separate family, Calymnidae. Whether the marginal fascicle is a family-character it is impossible to decide, as long as this form is the only one known of the family; but judging from the other families it will scarcely be more than a generic character."
