Ciocalypta penicillus Bowerbank, 1862

The form of this sponge is very characteristic, it consists of a basal cushion buried in sand or gravel, from which project large conical, translucent papillae. The surface of the papillae has a glassy and translucent appearance. The walls of the papillae are thick and robust with a roughened texture. This sponge occurs at rock and sediment interface.
