The Hippasterinae is a subfamily within the Goniasteridae, consisting of five genera and 26 species, which occur in cold-water settings ranging from subtidal to abyssal depths. Here we describe three new species of coral eating sea stars including Sthenaster emmae as a new genus and species from the tropical Atlantic and two new Evoplosoma species, Evoplosoma claguei and Evoplosoma voratus sp. from seamounts in the North Pacific.
