This monogeneric family is distinguished from Triadocidaridae by its obviously crenulate tubercles. Although it resembles a cidaroid in external form, the lack of any internal perignathic girdle immediately sets it apart. Serpianotiaridae differ in having pseudocompound ambulacra with pore-pairs arranged biserially in each ambulacral column adorally. Distinguished from Polycidarids like Zbindenicidaris by its simple uniform tuberculation.
