This light yellow or grey sponge sponge tends to form bulky lumps, occasionally erecting from the surface with a quite narrow base. The furrowed surface is dominated by a few, but relatively large openings. It can be difficult or even impossible to distinguish this species from other members of the Mycalidae family from images alone.
This is a deep water species, reaching diveable depths only on a very few locations, most frequent in the fjords where you may encounter it already on 30 meters.
This sponge is widespread in the Mediterranean and the North Atlantic, from the Azores to Spitzbergen.
