Description 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).

Remark 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.
