Minimum depth from Ref. 86832. Inhabits Thalassia beds and sandy areas (Ref. 415, 86832), particularly muddy sand (Ref. 86832). Members of the class Holothuroidea are gonochoric and have only one gonad. Spawning and fertilization are both external and some exhibit brooding. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktotrophic larvae (auricularia) then into doliolaria (barrel-shaped stage) which later metamorphose into juvenile sea cucumbers (Ref. 833).
