 Comments
       
  Comment: monotypic family synonymized into Asteropseidae by Blake (1980)  
    urn:lsid:marinespecies.org:taxname:293262  
    'The transfer to [family Asteropseidae] by Blake means that the name Valvasteridae Viguier, 1878 should take precedence over Asteropseidae but there is a good case for the ICZN to set aside this priority to avoid further confusion' (Clark, 1993)
