Diagnosis. Abertella with strongly heterogeneous interambulacral basicoronal plates (small in interambulacrum 5, largest in interambulacra 2 and 3); oral interambulacra discontinuous by involvement of two adjacent ambulacral plates (rather than one as in other Abertella) in at least one of the oral interambulacra; apparent " violation " of Lovén's Rule in oral ambulacrum III.
Type material studied. Holotype MB E. 7463, paratype MB E. 7462.
Diagnosis. Abertella with heterogeneous interambulacral basicoronal plates (small in interambulacrum 5, largest in interambulacra 2 and 3) and disjunct oral interambulacra involving two ambulacral plates rather than one in some of the interambulacral areas.
Etymology. Named after Ashley Miskelly, a fellow echinologist from Australia, for his continuous support and help in echinoid matters. Types. Holotype is MB E. 7463, from P. Camarones, Chubut Province, southern Argentina. Camarones Formation, Miocene. Paratype MB E. 7462 has the same provenance as the holotype.
