Like Antedon, this species has a mouth that is positioned centrally on the disc with the anal cone positioned to one side, 10 arms, and the plump gonads start on the third pinnule from the mouth. This is a suspect "species" characterised by its relatively long cirri (with 17-26 segments) compared to Antedon species (14 segments), however, cirri and arm dimensions are now known to vary with environmental factors. Colour purple with faint banding on the arms. Arms up to 4 cm long.
In depths of 1-10 m.
Only reported from St Vincents Gulf, South Australia, and in Victoria from Port Phillip and Wilsons Promontory.
