A detailed account of the group and its possible mode of life is given by Gale & Smith (1982). This taxon differs from Hagenowia in having a less pronounced and much less acute apical rostrum and a continuous rather than disjunct plastron. It is distinguished from Cardiaster by having a much more anterior apical disc and uniserial plating on the plastron; in Cardiaster the plates of the plastron may become uniserial, but with successive plates triangular and offset to left and right, whereas in Infulaster the first three plates are linearly arranged.
