Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colour in life: grey-green with deep, mostly transverse, folding above, below pinkish overall most obviously between three longitudinal bands of tube feet (Humphreys, 1981).
Also distributed around the Pacific and the Indian Ocean (Lampert, 1909); N.E. Africa (Heding, 1940); SE Arabia, Persian Gulf, Maldive area, Ceylon, Bay of Bengal, East Indies, north Australia, Philippine, China, south Japan and South Pacific Is. (Clark & Rowe, 1971). Widespread in the tropical Indo-Pacific, excluding the Persian Gulf and Hawaii (Conand, 1998); throughout the Indo-west Pacific region except W India, Pakistan and Hawaii (Thandar, 1987).
Habitat: sand, mud, rock or coral (Thandar, 1987). [details]

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editorRemark In most of the literature before 1995 S. herrmanni is cited as S. variegatus Semper, 1868, a name no longer valid.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".
Lectotype Zoologisches Museum für Hamburg, Hamburg (Germany) E.2716. Type locality: Samoa (Rowe & Gates, 1995). [details]
