Clark, 1921

L. latipatina is a white sea cucumber with minute pink spots. It is a small species, with 12 tentacles. Its spicules are anchors and plates and mainly small 'C' shaped miliary granules (L. latipatina spicules). It is known only from the one specimen which Clark collected under a rock in Torres Strait.

Remarks: Although Clark erected the species L. dyscrita and L. latipatina he acknowledged they were very like L. dolabrifera, a common intertidal species from temperate Australia [(see Rowe, 1982; fig. 32-4 (colour)].
