Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm Max length : 100.0 cm H male/unsexed; (Ref. 358)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Maximum Heigth: 100 cm. Biology: the sponge being provided with choanocytes, able to generate considerable currents of exchange, they frequently proliferate on sites where water stagnates completely. On the other hand, this species, against this observation of a general nature, affect in one rather zones where mixing is dynamic (Ref. 358). Habitat: Generally on hard funds and inside caves under navy (Ref. 358). Members of the class Demospongiae are hermaphroditic. Life cycle: The zygote develops into parenchymella larva (free-swimming) before settling down on a substrate where it grows into a young sponge (Ref. 833).
