Abstract

Late in 1964, one of us (D.L.P.) received from
Professor V. V. Hickman in Tasmania a specimen of
a new synaptid holothurian from that island. Professor
Hickman had prepared permanent mounts of
representative calcareous deposits of the specimen,
and very kindly offered all of his material of the
species to D.L.P. for inclusion in a report on the
apodous holothurians of the Australian Museum
which was then in preparation. Early in 1966
F.W.E.R. received from the Oslo Museum six specimens
and a fragment of the same species. Quite by
accident we discovered that we were in the process
of describing this new species independently. This
joint contribution comprises the sum total of our
investigations.
