Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


This sponge consists of a bundle of yellow anastomosing tubes. The tubes form discrete groups converging on single conspicuous oscules and are typically about 3mm in diameter. Clathrina coriacea is similar but consists of tubes of smaller diameter. It exists in a range of colour forms but probably not the distinctive yellow of Clathrina clathrus.
