Amphiophiura Matsumoto, 1915
Amphiophiura ornata (Lyman)
- Ophioglypha ornata Lyman, T., 1882. Challenger Ophiuroidea, p. 61–2, Pl. 6.
Material Examined: None.
The holotype of the species is from Challenger Station 216, at 2,000 fathoms, north of New Guinea, but Lyman (1882, p. 296) also recorded the species from Station 165, in 2,600 fathoms, 900 miles west of Cape Farewell. This station borders the New Zealand region, where the species may therefore be expected to occur.
