CHLS_6 * Comment: unknown sample location and depth ('in polypier')
dentified by E. Topsent as 'Cliona nodosa'. Recognised as a new species and tentatively identified as S. minakestrum by C. Schönberg. All measurements are of mature, fully formed oxeas, but smaller sample size does not allow statistical comparison with other samples. Measurements conducted by C. Schönberg on tissue preparation made by E. Topsent. Data are sorted vertically by spicule width.
