Four new species of Antarctic sea cucumbers are described, three with author O’Loughlin: Crucella susannae, Euthyonidiella huwiLaevocnus katrinae, ; and Laevocnus leachmani with authors Davey and O’Loughlin. High-throughput 16S rRNA gene sequencing has been used to identify the intestinal microbiota of many animal species, but that of marine invertebrate organisms remains largely unknown. The World Register of Marine Species lists the following species: Ocnus amiculus Cherbonnier, 1988; Ocnus braziliensis (Verrill, 1868) Ocnus capensis (Théel, 1886) Ocnus cataphractus (Sluiter, 1901) Ocnus corbulus (Cherbonnier, 1953) Ocnus cylindricus Semper, 1867 Complete assignment of the sugar protons of holothurin-B and echinoside-B has been made on the basis of Together they form a unique fingerprint. 1 Holothuria hilla is a species of sea cucumber in the subgenus Mertensiothuria of the genus Holothuria.

Major families and genera of sea cucumber are Family Holothuriidae (genus Holothuria, Sticopus), family Cucumaridae (genus Colochirus, Cucumaria), family Sinaptidae (genus Protankyra). Part i. The ethyl acetate extract of a sea cucumber of Holothuria genus furnishes holothurin-B and echinoside-B in addition to a mixture of seven sterol-3-sulphates and a mixture of three sterol-3β-xylosides. Sea … title = "Chemical examination of a sea cucumber of Holothuria genus of the Indian Ocean". Researchers recognize at least 1,700 different species.
