Abstract
    A collection of crinoids from the vicinity of the Malagasy Republic, held in the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, in Paris, is identified. Three new species are described in the genera Chondrometra, Iridometra and Pentametrocrinus. The nominal species Comissia hartmeyeri A. H. Clark is considered to be conspecific with C. ignota A. H. Clark, and Dichrometra afra A. H. Clark with D. flagellata (J. Müller). Comments are included on several systematic problems which have arisen during the study of this collection.
