Selenka, 1867

H. (Lessonothuria) pardalis is a mottled light brown-grey and white sea cucumber, sometimes with dark spots along upper surface. It is cylindrical and tapering at its ends. It is a small species (< 100 mm), with a smooth tegument, and a thin and pliable body. Spicules are clumsy tables with a low to moderate spire and a spiny disc, and buttons, usually irregular (H. pardalis spicules, H. pardalis spicules 2). H. paradalis is found on reefs and coastal areas. It occurs below rocks on reef flats, and on rocky shores and in sea-grass areas.
