Taxonavigation

Ordo: Filifera
Familia: Stylasteridae

Name

Stylaster Gray, 1831Wikispecies linkPensoft Profile

Diagnosis

Colonies branching in a flabellum or a bush shape (in only one case lamellate). Coenosteum usually reticulate-granular but may be linear-imbricate; coenosteum of many colors and hardness. Gastro- and dactylopores arranged in conventional cyclosystem arrangement, with only one gastrostyle per cyclosystem; pores of the peripheral type; supernumerary dactylopores often present. Cyclosystems arranged on branch edges and/or on corallum faces, or uniformly on all branch surfaces, but not unifacially. Gastropore tube single-chambered, but may be constricted by a ring palisade. Dactylostyles present. Ampullae usually superficial.

Discussion

The genus and its various grouping are discussed by Cairns (1983b)[1] and a key to all stylasterid genera, including the groups of Stylaster, is provided by Cairns (1992)[2]. Currently there are 80 recognized Recent species and 7 fossil species (Appeltans et al. 2011[3]: WoRMS data base: www.marinespecies.org). It is by far the most species-rich and diverse genus of the stylasterids.

Type species

Madrepora roseus Pallas, 1766, by subsequent designation (Milne Edwards and Haime 1850[4]: xxii), a member of Group B.

Distribution

Oligocene to Recent: cosmopolitan from depths of 0-2010 m (Cairns 1992[2]; Appeltans et al. 2011[3]).
