Description[edit source | edit]
Members of the Molpadiidae family are fairly small, plump sea cucumbers with a smooth or slimy skin and no tube feet. They are relatively inactive and live in a "U"-shaped burrow in sand or mud at the bottom of the sea, often at considerable depths. Their tentacles spread out above the sediment to catch food particles.
Genera[edit source | edit]
The following genera are accepted as being in the Molpadiidae family:
- Aphelodactyla Clark, 1907
- Cherbonniera Sibuet, 1974
- Molpadia (Cuvier, 1817) Risso, 1826
- Pseudomolpadia
