In the centre of the under surface is the mouth-opening, from whence radiate to the extremities of the rays as many ambulacra as there are lobes; in these, the tubular retractile feet are arranged in two or four rows; and the margins of the rays in many genera are bordered by well-developed spinigerous plates.
