Ten out of totally 41 species of starfish that were collected around the Faroe Islands during the “BIOFAR” programme extended their previously known distribution area. The species are: Odontaster sp. Verrill, Tremaster mirabilis Verrill, Pseudarchaster gracilis (Sladen), Pteraster (Apterodon) cf. acicula (Downey), Pteraster obscurus (Perrier), Pteraster pulvillus M. Sars, Neomorphaster margaritaceus (Perrier), Pedicellaster typicus M. Sars, Stephanasterias albula (Stimpson) and Stichastrella rosea (O.F. Müller). P. gracilis, P. (A.) cf. acicula and N. margaritaceus are for the first time reported as far north as to the Faroe Islands. O. obscurus has extended its depth range down to 600 m.
