Classification Ehlers (1871) renamed this Lanice tube structure as a sponge, Aulorhipis elegans. However, Ernst Haeckel (1873, p.246 in "On calcisponges ...") commented that "Of the supposed new form of sponge [Aulorhipis elegans), upon which Ehlers founds his whole argument, he knows nothing except the horny skeleton, no trace of soft parts. But this horny skeleton, which encloses foreign bodies, is a solid cord attached to a worm-tube at one end, and the dichotomously divided branches of which spread out like a fan in one plane. It is very probable that this skeleton does not belong to a sponge at all". It looks like Ehlers was thinking the tube was named Terebella flabellum, so he could name the attached sponge Aulorhipis elegans, but the flaw is it isn't an attached sponge - it's all part of the tube. [details]
