    Specimens from Japan, Thailand, Papua New Guinea and Madagascar have allowed a complete redescription of Stichopus naso Semper, 1868. The species, with a wide Indo-Pacific distribution, is new to the fauna of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar. Similar to several other shallow-water holothurians it has the potential to reproduce by transversal fission. When disturbed, the body undulates in a typical fashion and it is capable of limited swimming movements.
