LXVIII, Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 . Pl. LXIX, Figs I –3. Pl. LXXXVIII, Figs 22–23 View FIGURE 22 View FIGURE 23 ; Clark & Courtman-Stock, 1976: 229; Schultz, 2010: 126, Figs 229–232.

Material examined. MBC-A077794; MBC-A077798; MBC-A077802; MBC-A077803; SAMC-A 23724; MBC- A077796; MBC-A077804; MBC-A077797; MBC-A077795; MBC-A077799; MBC-A077800; MBC-A077801; MBC-A077805.

Identification. Test creamish; conspicuous naked interambulacra, naked zone pink to light lilac, with yellow patches, bordered by red line. Spines long, fusiform, green and spotted or banded reddish.

Global maximum size. Maximum test diameter 40 mm.

Global distribution. East coast of South Africa to Philippines at 70–300 m depth ( Mortensen 1935; Schultz 2010).

Remarks. Samples identified through this study extend previously known distribution northwards towards southern Mozambique border. Color may distinguish the two Coelopleurus   species; the naked interambulacra zones of C. maillardi   are violet with orange tints bordered by a red line; whereas C. interruptus   has a brown naked patch with transverse violet bands and lateral white lines.
