Nice one Mark. Reminds me of the huge backlogue of sea cucumber and sea star papers that I have still to complete.
a related matter, a thought occurred to me about deep cucs. Lots of deep-water video
footage is being taken in the S. Indian Ocean adjacent to W.
Australia (by Fugro I think) in the (thus far fruitless) search for
a missing MAS plane. It might be interesting to review this footage for
cucumber abundances and possible identities (if the camera is HD).
Meanwhile, I attach a cuc paper, published by an Indonesian colleague and myself, that no-one seems aware of !!
