Current status.

Asteracmea maraisi  (Kilburn, 1977); WoRMS Editorial Board (2020).

Remarks.

Generic position of this species remains uncertain. Its relation to Asteracmea  has been suggested in the original description ( Kilburn 1977: 175) but formal decision is awaiting proper revision of this group. Overexposed areas were intentionally introduced on Fig. 2View Figure 2 to show otherwise barely visible details of sculpture.
