• Norwegian: sjøliljer


The feather stars have five pairs of long and slender, feather-like arms. They are coated with a sticky substance helping them to catch food drifting by. The anus is turned upwards and on the underside of the small central disk there are feet (cirri) used to cling to the bottom or even move around.


Along the Norwegian coast there are six known species of feather stars, five of them can be seen on diveable depths and are all members of the family Antedonidae.
