Members of the Molpadiidae family are fairly small, plump sea cucumbers with a smooth or slimy skin and no tube feet. They are relatively inactive and live in a "U"-shaped burrow in sand or mud at the bottom of the sea, often at considerable depths. Their tentacles spread out above the sediment to catch food particles.
The following genera are accepted as being in the Molpadiidae family:
- Aphelodactyla Clark, 1907
- Cherbonniera Sibuet, 1974
- Molpadia (Cuvier, 1817) Risso, 1826
- Pseudomolpadia
