Abstract:Comprehensive phylogenetic hypotheses for the Goniasteridae provides a strong context for establishment of new genera and species. Goniasterid starfish represent among the most poorly known of asteroid groups. Only 75% of the goniasterid fauna was known at the end of the 20th Century. This study recognizes much of this undescribed biodiversity, including 10 new genera and six new species.
