From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription This genus includes ypsilothuriids with thecal plates made up of only a single layer of calcacerous material. Currently only four species - the cosmopolitan type species Echinocucumis hispida (Barret, 1856), the Western Indian Ocean E. paratypica Ludwig & Heding, 1935, and the Eastern Atlantic E. tenera Cherbonnier, 1958, and E. multipodia Cherbonnier, 1964, are included in the genus. The latter two species possess bifurcate processes to the calcacerous ring and hence may not strictly belong in Echinocucumis[details]
