Extensive new collections of latrunculid sponges from British Columbia, the Aleutian Islands, and the Gulf of Alaska, have extended the distributions of known species Latrunculia oparinae Samaai & Krasokhin, 2002, from the Russian Sea of Okhotsk, L. velera Lehnert et al., 2006, from the Aleutian Islands, and L. austini Samaai et al., 2006, from British Columbia. New material has facilitated detailed re-descriptions of these species and in situ images have improved our understanding of their… Expand
New species in the sponge genus Tsitsikamma (Poecilosclerida, Latrunculiidae) from South Africa

A comprehensive inventory of the Gulf of Alaska sponge fauna with the description of two new species and geographic range extensions.
The comprehensive inventory of the sponge fauna of the Gulf of Alaska confirms the presence of 52 taxa with an additional 38 taxa suspected of occurring in the region, a much lower number of species than that recorded from neighbouring regions like the Aleutian Islands and British Columbia. Expand
First deep-sea Hamigera (Demospongiae: Porifera) species associated with Cold-Water Corals (CWC) on antipodal latitudes of the world
Abstract Cold-water corals (CWC) are known to be deep-sea biodiversity hotspots, yet there is still a huge knowledge gap regarding their associated fauna. As so, CWC ecosystems pose as a perfectExpand

New Discorhabdin B Dimers with Anticancer Activity from the Antarctic Deep-Sea Sponge Latrunculia biformis
Two new discorhabdin dimers (2 and 3) are added to this small pyrroloiminoquinone subfamily, also the first report of compound 1 as a natural product and the first assessment of its in vitro anticancer activity. Expand
The The colourful chemistry of South African latrunculid sponges
Marine sponges – in common with many other sessile marine invertebrates seemingly devoid of obvious physical forms of defence against predators, e.g. spines or shells – are the sources of a diverseExpand
Tridiscorhabdin and Didiscorhabdin, the First Discorhabdin Oligomers Linked with a Direct C-N Bridge from the Sponge Latrunculia biformis Collected from the Deep Sea in Antarctica.
Two new discorhabdin-type alkaloids were isolated from the sponge Latrunculia biformis, collected from the Weddell Sea (Antarctica) at -291 m depth and exhibited strong cytotoxic activity against the human colon cancer cell line HCT-116. Expand
Computationally Assisted Discovery and Assignment of a Highly Strained and PANC-1 Selective Alkaloid from Alaska's Deep Ocean.
We report here the orchestration of molecular ion networking and a set of computationally assisted structural elucidation approaches in the discovery of a new class of pyrroloiminoquinone alkaloidsExpand


Taxonomic revision of the genus Latrunculia Du Bocage (Porifera: Demospongiae: Latrunculiidae) in New Zealand
Nine new species of Latrunculia in New Zealand are described, two of which fall into two morphological groups, spinispiraefera and triverticillata, which can be diagnosed by the number of whorls present along the discorhabd axis. Expand
New species of Latrunculia from the Agulhas shelf, South Africa, with designation of a type species for subgenus Biannulata (Demospongiae, Poecilosclerida, Latrunculiidae)
Three new species of Latrunculia are described from Algoa Bay, and Alphard and 45-Mile Banks, on the Agulhascontinental shelf off the southern coast of South Africa, with megascleres vary specifically in dimensions and degree of ornamentation. Expand

Proposal for a revised classification of the Demospongiae (Porifera)
The deletion of polyphyletic taxa, the use of resurrected or new names for new clades and the proposal of new family groupings will improve the comparability of studies in a wide range of scientific fields using sponges as their object of study. Expand
