Skeleton network light brown, fragile, reticulate with more or less square meshes from the sponge base to the surface. Almost parallel ascending primary fibres (200–300 µm in diameter) free from foreign inclusions, with apices supporting conules. Each primary fibre as a bundle of some (2–5) uncored secondary fibres (50–100 µm in diameter) joined by conspicuous spongin tracts and cribrose plates.
