The sponge is named as harp sponge because of its typical lyre or harp like shape. Later, during the German Deep Sea Expedition “Valdivia” (1898-1899), Schulze could describe the largest siliceous hexactinellid sponge on Earth, the up to 3 m high Monorhaphis chuni, which develops the equally largest bio-silica structures, the giant basal spicules (3 m × 10 mm).

Red-Orange Encrusting Sponge. Once an acorn barnacle attaches as an adult, it surrounds itself with a strong shell that provides it protection from predation and allows it to trap some water during low tide.

A process known as inversion occurs in amphiblastula larva like those of Volvox. While some sponges are very colorful (such as the Caribbean Blue Sponge) or very large (Giant Barrel Sponge), most sponges are small or cryptic and require very fine-scale analysis for proper species identification.

Recruitment, or the entry, of young coral reef fishes into benthic populations is essential to population survival, but because larvae typically spend several weeks in the plankton away from the reef environment, understanding the entire process encompassing adult spawning, larval dispersal, and final settlement to the reef has been challenging.
