Taxon Notes:This family is currently restricted to the following genera - Ophiura s.s, Ophiocrossota, Ophiocten, Ophioctenella and Ophionotus. Several other genera previously included here are listed as family incertae cedis in O'Hara et al, 2018 - here we retain them in Ophiuridae pending more work to clarify their status. This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to family level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available.
