Clark, 1938

O. megapodia is a dull grey/brown, small, cylindrical sea cucumber tapering posteriorly with a short anal projection. It has a thick body wall covered with numerous scattered tube feet. Spicules are lacking from the body wall, but the tube feet have plates and the tentacles rosettes. Specimens of this species are trawled from muddy regions.
