Abstract
    The type species of Edwardsia, a genus of burrowing sea anemone, is E. beautempsi Quatrefages 1842. This species has never been positively identified since it was first described, although many authors have incorrectly assumed it to be identical with E. callimorpha (Gosse). This paper provides a redescription of E. beautempsi and another of Quatrefages' species, E. timida, from the original locality, Iles Chausey, Normandy. Previous records of both species are reviewed and the status of several possibly synonymous species is discussed.
