    Abstract

    Over 1,300 specimens of Holothuria atra ranging in size from 78 to 351 mm were examined for internal commensals and parasites, and of these eight were found to harbour gastropods belonging to the genus Stilifer in their cloaca1 chamber. Thirteen parasites were collected in all of which three had egg capsules between the shell and the pseudopallium, The parasite which appear to be a new one is described and figured and its early development is given. Unsuccessful attempts to infect fresh holothurians with free swimming veligers are briefly discussed.
