The cukes labeled as Stichopus regalis are probably not stichopodids. I would suggest light-colored versions of  Holothuria tubulosa.

Hello all,

  I received these cuke pictures taken from Dakar, Sénégal by a French naturalist who is getting worried about Chinese prospectors who want to harvest them. I'm not familiar with the fauna, but maybe some of you are. Do you have any IDs?

  Thanks,
