Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpecimen The Leiden Museum incorporates a small collection of Lamarck specimens ('duplicates'), which were donated by the Paris Museum in 1815 as part compensation for lost Dutch natural history objects sequestered during the French occupation of Holland (1795-1813). Among these there is a specimen labeled Spongia stellifera. In the absence of specimens left in Paris, this is here considered the lectotype.  [details]
