Two new holothurian species, Cucumaria webbi and Holothuria (Selenkothuria) perrieri, from the east coast of South Africa, are diagnosed and descriptionbed. Cucumaria webbi appears to be closely related to C. deichmanni from the coasts of South West Africa and Angola while H. (S.) perrieri shows affinities with H. (S.) lubrica of the East Pacific and H. (S.) parva of the West Indian Ocean.
