Description

Voucher material NHM_267 maximum width of disc 10.5mm (Fig. 11). Length of medial antenna 3.1mm- specimen NHM_253 (Fig. 11). Morphological identification matches Porcellanaster ceruleus   detailed in Wywille Thomson (1877).

Genetic data for this taxa with new GenBank accession numbers are provided in Table 2

Diagnosis

Morphologically matches diagnosis of Porcellanaster ceruleus   Wyville Thomson, 1877. Forms a unique monophyletic clade distinct from other AB01 specimens. Sequences of this material has no genetic matches on GenBank or Barcode of Life Database. The type material of Porcellanaster ceruleus   Wyville Thomson, 1877 was dredged by the Challanger SE of New York (38°34'N; 72°10'W, 2270m depth) wich is significantly separated from our collection site. We assign the tentative name Porcellanaster cf. ceruleus   to this material until we have a better understanding of genetic variation within the species including data from the type locality.
