Welcome to the Echinoderms of Panama LifeDesk
This LifeDesk has been created to document the diversity of echinoderms (sea lilies, feather stars, brittle stars, starfish, sea urchins and sea cucumbers) that occur off both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts of Panama. Species pages will ultimately contain images, diagnostic descriptions and references, with links to nomenclators, GenBank, Barcode of Life, as well as distribution and specimen data with museum catalogue numbers.
Additionally this site contains photographs of type and non type material of species that I am working on that are not recorded from Panama. These are marked with an * after the name.
