An orange sponge species with encrusting form. Size of about 10 cm.
Species within this genus group often settle on the shells of bivalve molluscs, or are cut off by decorator crabs and worn on the crab's carapace. In both cases the host animals gain camouflage and chemical protection, while the sponge obtains mobility and may gain better access to food-rich waters.
