  author={M{\'a}rcio Reis Cust{\'o}dio and Eduardo Hajdu and Guilherme Muricy},
The process of microsclere secretion was examined in vivo through glass coverslip implants in three species of the genus Mycale from São Sebastião channel, southeastern Brazil: Mycale (Aegogropila) angulosa, Mycale (Arenochalina) laxissima, and Mycale (Carmia) microsigmatosa. All three species adhered well to coverslips and developed normally through at least 2 weeks. Similar experiments with different species (Cinachyrella alloclada, Amphimedon viridis, Haliclona melana, and Aplysina caissara… CONTINUE READING
