Description:

Annual emptying of Thanet's largest tidal pool (at low tide end would be 5m) Found in sublittoral, submerged probably most of the time here, when the sluice gates are shut. Here are 2 examples of this sponge - one on the chalk reef (1st 3 pics) and the other (last 2 pics) on the vertical side of the pool (not sure what's happened to this one) but it does give some idea of texture. This is the easy one, got a lot more that I am not sure about at all. I hope there are some Porifora experts out there.
