Asteriacites are ichnofossils that have been identified as resting traces made by ophiuroid echinoderms and asteroids.
These marks are produced by echinoderms when they rest buried or semi-buried in the sandy substrate where the transverse marks that sometimes appear would correspond to the tube feet. The mucus secreted by these animals contributes to the preservation of the trace.
