[nom. correct Faujasidae Lambert, 1905, p. 13]
Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian) to Miocene.
The Faujasiidae are distinguished by their strongly developed tooth-like bourrelets, with typically broad phyllodes and broad petals. The basicoronal interambulacral plates are longer than wide, in marked contrast to those of Cassidulidae and Echinolampadidae. Ochetus differs from all other taxa included here in having double pores beneath the petals and is presumably the primitive sister group.
