Scientific Name Notes:This species has previously been known as Patiriella gunnii, a name now applied to the species previously known as P. brevispina. Recent work by O'Loughlin, Waters & Roy (2003) has shown that what was previously called P. gunnii is in fact a complex of three species, now described as P. medius, P. occidens and P. oriens. More recently O'Loughlin & Waters have placed the whole group into the genus Meridiastra.
