Abstract
    A specimen of Ocnus planci (Brandt, 1835) (Dendrochirotida-Cucumariidae) was collected in Djerba (Tunisia), at low tide, in a surrounding of sand and rocks. The holothurian had on the surface of its tegument a living specimen of a parasitic gastropod (Eulimidae): Melanella boscii (Payraudeau, 1826). This observation extends the parasitism of Melanella boscii to the Dendrochirotida group.
