Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDescription This encrusting species is poorly described and not compared with other Agelas species. The distinctive feature apparently is the possession of larger verticillated styles with a smooth area in the middle of the shaft. The type material consists of a spicule slide only, which is insufficient to discriminate from other Agelas species. [details]
