Abstract

A new ophiuroid, Ophiomicros bathursti gen. et sp.nov. is described from Cenomanian (Upper Cretaceous) strata of Bathurst Island, Northern Territory. The new genus may be allied to Ophiura Lamarck, 1816 and Amphiura Forbes, 1842 but is readily distinguishable from both these genera by unusually large oral plates and small adoral plates.
