Etymology The genus group name represents a combination of the term "placa", from the Latin for "plate", and the term "catena", Greek for "chain", signifying continuity of the paired oral interambulacra. There is also an implicit double meaning in the combination, as the first seven letters of the name form the word "placate", suggesting our attempt to put at peace the many problems associated with this, and related problematic South American taxa. [details]

Diagnosis  Scutelline sand dollars with a slight to very pronounced posterior notch; paired oral interambulacra continuous; first postbasicoronal plates in paired oral interambulacra greatly elongated along the interradius, at least four times longer than wide and at least two to three times the length of any other postbasicoronal in the paired columns. [details]
