Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

During the day, this species is found under rubble on reef flats, while at night it starts being exposed and active. Disturbance causes this species to eject copious amounts of Cuvierian tubules (Ref. 85218). Members of the class Holothuroidea are gonochoric and have only one gonad. Spawning and fertilization are both external and some exhibit brooding. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktotrophic larvae (auricularia) then into doliolaria (barrel-shaped stage) which later metamorphose into juvenile sea cucumbers (Ref. 833).
