Abstract

Hemicentrotus pulcherrimus, Pseudocentrotus depressus, and Heliocidaris crassispina co-occur in the field in temperate waters of Southern Japan. H. pulcherrimus produce the bitter pulcherrimine in ripe ovaries in autumn and move to shallow algal communities for reproductive success in winter. Insufficient information is available to characterize P. depressus, which is the most important species in the sea urchin fishery in Southern Japan. Ecological studies on the changes in community structure in Northern Japan where H. pulcherrimus and H. crassispina have extended are needed.
