Leptosynapta inhaerens (OF Muller 1776) (Echinodermata, Holothuroidea): A new record for the Belgian marine waters

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 144(2):112-119.

This is the first record of Leptosynapta inhaerens (O.F. Muller, 1776) in Belgian marine waters and adds a second apodid species, the first being Leptosynapta minuta (Becher, 1906), to the Belgian holothuroid fauna. This paper contains a morphological description of the specimens, the habitat characteristics, and includes a world distribution map of L. inhaerens. Relationships between L. inhaerens and environmental data are discussed.
