DescriptionA branching-erect, dark brown coloured sponge. The branching is typically irregular, in all planes and rarely fused. The surface of the sponge is bristly with hairs of uniform length which trap particles of silt. This is the only dark brown, branched, bristly sponge which is common, but beware other rarer Raspailia species whose live appearance is currently unknown.
