Abstract: A new genus and species of Stylasteridae is described, Cyclohelia
lamellata, based on one specimen from 550 m off the Pribilof Islands, Bering
Sea. The species is unusual in having a lamellate growth form and unique in
having elliptical dactylopore spines that are rimmed on all sides. The genus is
hypothesized to be most closely related to Distichopora and Sporadopora.
Cyclochelia lamellata is one of the most northerly records of a stylasterid in the
Pacific Ocean.
