DescriptionA stiff rigid starfish with a sandpapery texture to the dorsal surface. This species comes in a variety of colour forms, purple being the most common. It is only distinguished from the next species by the very fine dorsal spinelets which have 3-6 glassy points. Usually about 12cm across. It may be impossible to distinguish this species from Henricia oculata except in the laboratory.
