Abstract
    O’Loughlin, P.M., 2002. Report on selected species of BANZARE and ANAREHolothuroidea, 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 ZealandAntarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE) 1929-1931 from Kerguelen I. and easternAntarctica, are listed. Relevant species of Holothuroidea also collected from the Kerguelenregion (Heard I.) and eastern Antarctica by the Australian National Antarctic Research Expe-ditions(ANARE) 1985-1997 are reported and discussed. The genera Meseres Ludwig andHeterocucumis Panning are reviewed. The genus Ekmocucumis Heding and subgenusEkmocucumis Panning are junior synonyms of Staurocucumis Ekman. A new Antarctic genusof the Cucumariidae, Psolicrux, and a new species of Synallactidae, Meseres spiculiferus, aredescribed. Systematic and distribution notes are provided for Chiridota pisanii Ludwig, Tae-niogyruscontortus (Ludwig), Bathyplotes bongraini Vaney, B. gourdoni (Vaney), Meseresglobigerinae (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, Pseudostichopusatlanticus Perrier, Heterocucumis godeffroyi (Semper), H. steineni (Ludwig), Psolicrux coatsi(Vaney), Staurocucumis liouvillei (Vaney), Trachythyone lechleri (Lampert), Paracucumisturricata (Vaney), Amperima robusta (Théel), Rhipidothuria racovitzai Hérouard and Laet-mogonewyvillethomsoni Théel. Pseudostichopus globigerinae Hérouard is removed from thesynonymy of Pseudostichopus villosus Théel, and assigned to Meseres. Pseudostichopuspropinquus Fisher is removed from the synonymy of Pseudostichopus pustulosus Sluiter, andassigned to Meseres. A list of species with original and current name combinations, and a sum-maryof new distributions, are tabulated.
