Jaeger, 1833

B. marmorata is a sea cucumber with a variable mixture of brown and/or yellow, usually with small brown spots on its upper surface, but freqently with large angular dark patches (B. marmorata photo). Its cuvierian tubules are readily ejected. Spicules are short branched rods. B. marmorata is found on reefs, usually more or less buried on sand of flats or lagoons.
