  Brittle star species for the aquarium. Within the animal phylum Echinodermata (sea urchins, starfishes, sea cucumbers, and others), the brittle stars belong to the class Ophiuroidea. Ophiuroidea consists of the three orders Ophiurida, Oegophiurida, and Euryalida (or Phrynophiurida) that contain 17 families with about genera. Brittle stars or ophiuroids are echinoderms in the class Ophiuroidea closely related to starfish. They crawl across the sea floor using their flexible arms for locomotion. The ophiuroids generally have five long, slender, whip-like arms which may reach up to 60 cm (24 in) in length on the largest specimens. They are also known as serpent stars; the New Latin class name Ophiuroidea is derived.

Two thousand species have been species identified in Subclass Ophiuroidea. All are marine, as are all echinoderms. They are found in all seas, at all latitudes, and from the intertidal to the abyssal zone (to a depth of 6, meters). We built an interactive identification key to provide a user-friendly tool for the Ophiuroidea (brittle stars) species using Xper³ () which is a knowledge platform dedicated to.

Introduction to the Ophiuroidea. Ophiuroids are a large group (over species) of echinoderms that includes the brittle stars (Ophiurida) and basket stars (Euryalida). The more familiar Ophiurida, or brittle stars, usually have five arms and superficially resemble true starfish (Asteroidea).

However, brittle stars have long, flexible arms (hence the other common name for ophiuroids, "snake. The Ophiuroidea contain two large clades, Ophiurida (brittle stars) and Euryalida (basket stars). Over 2, species of brittle stars live today.

My data consists of benthic species lists and. The phylum echinoderms is divided into five extant classes: Asteroidea (sea stars), Ophiuroidea (brittle stars), Echinoidea (sea urchins and sand dollars), Crinoidea (sea lilies or feather stars), and Holothuroidea (sea cucumbers).

The most well-known echinoderms are members of class Asteroidea, or sea stars. Echinoderm is the common name given to any member of the phylum Echinodermata (from Ancient Greek, ἐχῖνος, echinos – "hedgehog" and δέρμα, derma – "skin") of marine adults are recognizable by their (usually five-point) radial symmetry, and include starfish, sea urchins, sand dollars, and sea cucumbers, as well as the sea lilies or "stone lilies".Clade: ParaHoxozoa.

Class Ophiuroidea Brittle stars are largest of the major groups of echinoderms in numbers of species, and they are probably the most abundant also. They abound in all types of benthic marine habitats, even carpeting the abyssal sea bottom in many areas. This phylum is divided into five extant classes: Asteroidea (sea stars), Ophiuroidea (brittle stars), Echinoidea (sea urchins and sand dollars), Crinoidea (sea lilies or feather stars), and Holothuroidea (sea cucumbers) (Figure 2).
