Stiff-footed white sea cucumber:
Stiff-footed white sea cucumber (Epentacta quinquesemita): This species is difficult to definitively identify without a look at the ossicles through a microscope. A description of the ossicles can be found in Lambert 1997. Macroscopically, this species has much shorter, stiffer tube feet than the incredibly similar Eupentacta pseudoquinquesemita. A similar genus is Pentamera spp.
