Abstract
    This check-list is a compilation of the echinoderms recorded from Norway and the abyssal depths of the Norwegian Sea. Echinoderms not recorded from the Norwegian fauna but found on the North Sea plateau, the British North Sea coast, the Swedish west coast and in Danish waters are also included. Distributional data are provided for each species. Most commonly used synonyms are listed, together with type species for each accepted generic name. Systematical code numbers are included for easy retrieval of information. The check-list is preceded by an introduction with a historical survey of faunistic works on echinoderms from the area included, and concluded with an alphabetical index of all generic names mentioned. Recent taxonomic alterations and all distributional records are documented by literature references.
