Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark In most of the literature before 1995 S. herrmanni is cited as S. variegatus Semper, 1868, a name no longer valid. The specimens formerly identified as S. variegatus are either S. herrmanni or S. monotuberculatus. In Rowe & Gates (1995): "several missing specimens in the syntype series of Stichopus variegatus are herein re-identified from Semper's description as Stichopus monotuberculatus. But lectotipification puts Stichopus variegatus with S. horrens".
