Pelmatozoa Leuckart, 1848

Pelmatozoa was once a clade of Phylum Echinodermata. It included stalked and sedentary echinoderms. The main class of Pelmatozoa were the Crinoidea which includes sea lily and feather star.

Pelmetazoa is no longer a classification of Echinodermata.[1]

Fell, Howard B. "Pelmatozoa". AccessScience, McGraw Hill Education. Retrieved 27 September 2014. "Formerly treated as a formal unit of classification with the rank of subphylum, pelmatozoans are now realized to be a heterogeneous assemblage of forms with similar habits but dissimilar ancestry..."
