Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Contact to this species may cause dermatitis (Ref. 87801). This species is found on rock walls at depths of 10 to 1,080 m. It is often used as a substrate of other species such as tunicates of cnidarians. It can tolerate stress through fine sediments (Ref. 87801). 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).
