Svenzea zeai

(Alvarez, van Soest 1998)
This sponge has a smooth surface, black to dark purple or reddish in colour.

It consists of clumps of amphora-shaped units, sometimes tending to tubular, but usually with very tapered or conical apertures. Occasionally apertures are nearly flush with the surface. Although colonies are usually clumped, there may be a tendency for ramose extensions to develop. Sometimes covered with epifauna.
