DescriptionThis sea cucumber has a crown of large bushy tentacles and lives amongst boulders or in muddy sand. The tentacles are off-white with orange patches and there are small pink spots all over the introvert and around the mouth. The body is U-shaped and has a sole at the base with the tube-feet confined to this area. Up to 20cm in length. Very distinctive, the only other species of Psolus known from the British Isles lives in deep water, though it looks similar to juvenile P. phantapus.
