  1. Hi,
    For a project I need to find the latin name of a five pointed starfish. Skinny, straight legs and fairly rounded end of "fingers", from New Zealand waters. Would you be able to point me in the direction of some images where the names are mentioned?
    Thank you!
    Ingrid

  2. If you can provide the link showing the picture of the species in question I can probably help you. The New Zealand fauna is pretty distinctive.
