Abstract
    Three shallow holothuroid species are recorded for the rocky shoreline of the Kermadec Islands. The new apodid species Chiridota kermadeca sp. nov. is described. Two dendrochirotid species are reported, both previously found in New Zealand: Plesiocolochirus ignavus (Ludwig, 1875) and Pseudocnus sentus O’Loughlin & Alcock, 2000.
