From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Also recorded in SE Arabia (Clark & Rowe, 1971); Australia (Rowe & Gates, 1995).
General distribution: tropical, Indo-west Pacific Ocean, depth range 0-30 m. (Rowe & Gates, 1995); widely distributed in the Indo-Pacific Ocean from the Red Sea and Madagascar to Easter Island, and from Japan to Australia (Massin, 1996).
Ecology: benthic, inshore, detritus feeder, deposit feeder (Rowe & Gates, 1995); from tide pools up to 45 m. Depth (Massin, 1996). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Massin (1996) treats Stichopus variegatus Semper as a synonym of S. monotuberculatus, but in 1999 he says it could either be a synonym of S. herrmanni. In Rowe & Gates (1995) lectotipification puts Stichopus variegatus with S. horrens and several missing specimens in the syntype series of Stichopus variegatus are herein re-identified from Semper's description as Stichopus monotuberculatus.
?Holotype Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris (France). Type locality: Port Louis, Mauritius (Rowe & Gates, 1995). [details]
