    This is the first record of Leptosynapta inhaerens (O.F. Müller, 1776) in Belgian marine waters
    and adds a second apodid species, the first being Leptosynapta minuta (Becher, 1906), to the Belgian holothuroid
    fauna. This paper contains a morphological description of the specimens, the habitat characteristics, and
    includes a world distribution map of L. inhaerens. Relationships between L. inhaerens and environmental data
    are discussed.
