New Locality Records For The Holothurian, Selenkothuria glaberrima (Selenka)

Elisha S. Tikasingh

Abstract


Some 24 species of holothurians, commonly called sea cucumbers have been recorded from the shallow waters of the Caribbean Sea (Deichmann, 1963). Of this total, 10 species are known to occur in Tobago and three in Trinidad. None, have been recorded from the waters of Dominica. Through the courtesy of various collectors I can now add Selenkothuria glaberrima (Selenka) as being new to the fauna of these three islands.
