Abstract

Breynia vredenburgi Anderson was until recently known only from a single young specimen 39 mm. long which was dredged from Port Blair, Andaman Islands and described by Anderson in 1907. Clark (1946) in discussing the genus Breynia remarked' Although there are supposed to be two species in this genus the northern one, from Andaman Island, is still little known'. The northern species referred to is Breynia vredenburgi. Mortensen (1951) could not give any additional information on the species in his monograph of the Echinoidea for want of specimens.
