James, D B (1981) Studies on Indian Echinoderms - 7. On a new family Labidodematidae (Holothurioidea : Aspidochirotida) with a detailed description of Labidodemas rugosum (Ludwig) from the Andamans. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 23 (1&2). pp. 82-85.
The genus Labidodemas Selenka which was hitherto included in the family Holothuriidae has been removed to a new family Labidodematidae due to the presence of pedicels and papillae confined to the ambulacral areas and also due to the highly dissimilar radial and interradial plates. A detailed description Labidodemas rugosum (Ludwig) from Andamans is given with notes on its habits.
