Actually there are quite a few small white sea cucumbers that occur in our range. They include (but there are more):
The problem with common names is that they can and do apply to multipl;e species, and different species depending on which ID book you look at. For example in Lamb and Hanby Eupentacta quinquesemita is called the Stiff-footed Sea Cucmber, not the White Sea Cucumber.
That being said. Cucumaria salma is definitely not white, it's body is red to orange. The tentacles are white, orange, and black.
