Abstract Morphologic and molecular data often lead to different hypotheses of phylogenetic relationships. This is also true in the echinoderm class Echinoidea. In particular, the phylogenetic status of the order Clypeasteroida is not well resolved. Complete mitochondrial genomes are currently available for 29 echinoid species, but no clypeasteroid has been sequenced to date. DNA extracted from a single live individual of Sinaechinocyamus mai was sequenced with 10× Genomics technology. This first...

Abstract The rich fossil record of echinoids documents their 460 million years long evolutionary history and provides a treasure trove for phylogenetic studies. The multielement high-magnesium calcite skeleton of echinoids offers a huge range of phylogenetically useful information applicable to both extant and fossil specimens. This allows seamless integration of modern and extinct taxa in joint analyses, likely being responsible for the high congruence between phylogenies based on morphological...

Abstract Extreme morphologies are often found in extreme conditions. Many commonalities exist in the morphology of deep and shallow-water sea urchins, but different evolutionary histories and adaptations to living at great depths have created peculiar and divergent morphologies within deep-sea sea urchins. These are highlighted alongside a list of families prevalent and charismatic in the deep sea. Following this brief introduction, life-history traits (growth and reproduction) and nutrition, in...

Abstract Assembly of publically available next-generation sequence data facilitated the generation of three camarodont echinoid mitogenomes: two for the Green Urchin ( Lytechinus variegatus ) and one for the Red Urchin ( Mesocentrotus franciscanus ). The data generated are exploited in a phylogenomic analysis of the superfamily Odontophora, originally proposed for echinoids with tooth supports on the epiphyses of the jaw. The analysis highly supports this taxon and its current subdivision into t...

The first recorded regular echinoid species from Sri Lanka, “ Salmacis virgulatus ” (now known as S. virgulata L. Agassiz in L. Agassiz & Desor, 1846), was listed by Agassiz & Desor (1846). Knowledge of Sri Lankan regular echinoids continued to advance until the end of the 19 th century. However, there is a gap in knowledge between the mid-20 th and the beginning of the 21 st centuries due to a lack of systematic studies, with the exception of two checklists published by the IUCN Red List in 200...
