Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colour in life: bold camouflage pattern in deep brown and beige, tube feet spread over surface give white dotted surface and often hold marine angiosperm leaves over the surface of the animal (cd. Tripneustes gratilla) (Humphreys, 1981).

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Panning (1929) considered B. koellikeri (Semper) to be synonyms of B. vitiensis (Semper); in 1944 he treats it as subspecie of B. marmorata Jaeger. Clark & Rowe (1971) consider that B. koellikeri merits specific rank. [details]
