Abstract
    O’Loughlin, P.M., 2002. Report on selected species of BANZARE and ANARE
    Holothuroidea, with reviews of Meseres Ludwig and Heterocucumis Panning (Echinoder-mata).
    Memoirs of Museum Victoria 59(2): 297-325.
    Selected Holothuroidea species collected by The British, Australian and New Zealand
    Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE) 1929-1931 from Kerguelen I. and eastern
    Antarctica, are listed. Relevant species of Holothuroidea also collected from the Kerguelen
    region (Heard I.) and eastern Antarctica by the Australian National Antarctic Research Expe-ditions
    (ANARE) 1985-1997 are reported and discussed. The genera Meseres Ludwig and
    Heterocucumis Panning are reviewed. The genus Ekmocucumis Heding and subgenus
    Ekmocucumis Panning are junior synonyms of Staurocucumis Ekman. A new Antarctic genus
    of the Cucumariidae, Psolicrux, and a new species of Synallactidae, Meseres spiculiferus, are
    described. Systematic and distribution notes are provided for Chiridota pisanii Ludwig, Tae-niogyrus
    contortus (Ludwig), Bathyplotes bongraini Vaney, B. gourdoni (Vaney), Meseres
    globigerinae (Hérouard), M. hyalegerus Sluiter, M. involutus Sluiter, M. macdonaldi Ludwig,
    M. occultatus (Marenzeller), M. peripatus Sluiter, M. propinquus (Fisher), M. torvus (Théel),
    M. trachus (Sluiter), M. villosus (Théel), Mesothuria bifurcata Hérouard, Pseudostichopus
    atlanticus Perrier, Heterocucumis godeffroyi (Semper), H. steineni (Ludwig), Psolicrux coatsi
    (Vaney), Staurocucumis liouvillei (Vaney), Trachythyone lechleri (Lampert), Paracucumis
    turricata (Vaney), Amperima robusta (Théel), Rhipidothuria racovitzai Hérouard and Laet-mogone
    wyvillethomsoni Théel. Pseudostichopus globigerinae Hérouard is removed from the
    synonymy of Pseudostichopus villosus Théel, and assigned to Meseres. Pseudostichopus
    propinquus Fisher is removed from the synonymy of Pseudostichopus pustulosus Sluiter, and
    assigned to Meseres. A list of species with original and current name combinations, and a sum-mary
    of new distributions, are tabulated.
