Sponges are the dominant invertebrates in many Antarctic communities, where they play a decisive structural function thanks to their abundance and large sizes. However, current knowledge on Antarctic sponges remains poor even with respect to basic aspects such as taxonomy. Here, we report on an Antarctic species of the genus Stylocordyla, which has been recorded for a long time under the name of the boreal S. borealis due to spicule and growth habit similarities. A thorough study of dense… Expand
