BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 135(1):83-86.

Leptosynapta minuta Becher, 1906 is described for the first time from Belgian marine waters. This brings a new order (Apodida), family (Synaptidae), subfamily (Leptosynaptinae) and genus (Leptosynapta) to the Belgian holothuroid fauna. A morphological description of the specimens, the habitat characteristics and all literature records with a distribution map of L. minuta is given.
