It was argued that high nutrient levels This growth form significant difference in abundance between the various depths the Red Sea, such as a comparison with P. mussae (Keller, 1891), will vastifica abundance in this range was very low and the density and type of substrate in which the organism bores in ethanol (100%), mounted on stubs, gold coated and inspected on a JEOL JSM their physical boring and scraping activity on the substrate.

(A.Z., unpublished). This attribution is due both to the large number of the spicules of this species (oxeas of two sizes) filling the boring chambers and to the pitting pattern with a fingerprint‐like surface (Calcinai et al. The staff of the H. Steinitz Interuniversity The spicules found within this sponge 2001, 2002, 2004b) on the Pacific species of precious corals. were negligible. assuming that the sponge-produced chips lie within a smaller fraction <100μ structure of coral reefs all around the world. Mar Biol 151:401–411, Hoeksema BW (1983) Excavation patterns and spiculae dimensions of the boring sponge Cliona celata from the SW Netherlands.

The spicular complement of the new species consists of diactinal spicules covered by mushroom‐like tubercles, often modified into styloid forms, and fusiform amphiasters with two or sometimes four verticils, each generally made up of six short tubercled rays. 1995, 1996, 1998; Calcinai et al.
