Hexactinellida from deep-water communities of the central Aleutian Islands, Alaska, are described. They were mostly collected by the remotely operated vehicle 'Jason II' from 494–2311 m depths during a 2004 RV 'Roger Revelle' expedition, but one shallow-water species collected with a shrimp trawl from 155 m in the same area is included. The excellent condition of the ROV-collected specimens enabled valuable redescription of some species previously known only from badly damaged specimens. New… Expand
A review of the Hexactinellida (Porifera) of Chile, with the first record of Caulophacus Schulze, 1885 (Lyssacinosida: Rossellidae) from the Southeastern Pacific Ocean.
All records of the 15 hexactinellid sponge species known to occur off Chile are reviewed, including the first record in the Southeastern Pacific of the genus Caulophacus Schulze, 1885, with the newExpand
A new genus and species of abyssal sponge commonly encrusting polymetallic nodules in the Clarion-Clipperton Zone, East Pacific Ocean
The Clarion-Clipperton Zone (CCZ) in the East Pacific is a vast region targeted for deep-sea mineral exploration, for which there are almost no published taxonomic data. Here we describe PlenasterExpand
Deep-sea glass sponges (Hexactinellida) from polymetallic nodule fields in the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone (CCFZ), northeastern Pacific: Part II—Hexasterophora
The Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone (CCFZ) in the northeastern Pacific is a potential area for deep-sea mining, comprises the worldwide largest polymetallic nodule fields and is one of the mostExpand
New hexactinellid sponges from deep Mediterranean canyons.
TLDR
During the exploration of the NW Mediterranean deep-sea canyons, several hexactinellid sponges were observed and collected by ROV and manned submersible and it is confirmed that the Mediterranean specimens are a distinct new species which is described. Expand
Deep-sea dives reveal an unexpected hexactinellid sponge garden on the Rio Grande Rise (SW Atlantic). A mimicking habitat?
TLDR
This is the first sponge garden worldwide found to be dominated by the stiff, often dichotomously branching, Sarostegia oculata which may occur in densities of over 5 individuals per square meter, thus mimicking the 3D skeletal framework of actual coral gardens. Expand
Deep-sea glass sponges (Hexactinellida) from polymetallic nodule fields in the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone (CCFZ), northeastern Pacific: Part I – Amphidiscophora
The Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone (CCFZ) in the northeastern Pacific is the world’s largest area for potential deep-sea mining of polymetallic nodules. Furthermore, it is one of the largest, mostExpand
A collection of hexactinellids (Porifera) from the deep South Atlantic and North Pacific: new genus, new species and new records
This article describes or redescribes four hexactinellid sponges, namely Poliopogon amadou, Euplectella sanctipauli sp. nov., Bolosoma perezi sp. nov. and Advhena magnifica gen. et sp. nov. P.Expand
First Lanuginellinae (Porifera, Hexactinellida, Rossellidae) from the NE Pacific and first species of Doconesthes from the Pacific Ocean.
A new sac-shaped hexactinellid collected from western Canada bearing long lateral prostal spicules was first thought to be a typical Rossellinae.  Subsequent examination of its spiculation proved itExpand
Symplectella rowi (Porifera: Hexactinellida: Lyssacinosida) is a rossellid, not a euplectellid. J. Mar. Biol. Ass. U.K. in press
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Symplectella rowi is indeed a rossellid, as was originally suggested, and the genus is officially transferred back to Rossellidae (subfamily Rossellinae), which represents another small step towards a more natural classification system of glass sponges. Expand
