Abstract
    The study of the holothurian genus Stichopus from the Johore Marine Park (Malaysia) revealed at least six different species, two being new to science: Stichopus ocellatus n. sp. and Stichopus rubermaculosus n. sp. Each species is fully described and illustrated. For the known species a list of records and the geographic distribution are given. A seventh species, Stichopus monotuberculatus, not yet recorded from the Johore Marine Park, but likely to be found there, is included in an identification key based on ossicle characters, colour pattems and behaviour.
