(Ludwig, 1874)

P. australis is a grey to orange sea cucumber with small papillae more or less evident along the corners of its somewhat square, firm body (length 50-65 mm). The tegument is rough and the spicules are homogeneous-sized baskets (P. australis spicules). P. australis may be found on reefs and in coastal areas, concealed among rubble, on reef flats and rocky shores.
