Present Inaccurate Introduced: alien Containing type locality
Taxonomy Specimens from Bermuda, South Africa, Brazil and the Philippines are likely not the same species. [details] Type designation Emma Sherlock, curator of the Natural History Museum sponge collection, provided the following information on the Leucilla uter type material:
Wet Material: 2 jars
one with outer label: “Leucilla uter, Poléjaeff, 18188.8.131.52, Lectotype [part Exhib. dry Index Mus.] “Challenger” Coll, Sta. 36, 32 faths.” The jar also has inner labelling probably original to Poléjaeff, repeating station / depth information and adding date 22 Apr. 1873. The inner labels are very faded.
one with outer label: “Leucilla uter, Poléjaeff, 18184.108.40.206-1, Cotype, “Challenger” Coll, Sta. 209, 95-100 faths.” The jar also has inner labelling probably original to Poléjaeff, repeating station / depth information and adding date 22 Jan. 1875. The inner labels are very faded.
one specimen, 18220.127.116.11: label says ‘Leucilla uter Pol. Type. 18.104.22.168 Challenger. ‘ The label writing looks like 20th century handwriting. This must be the dry part of 1822.214.171.124 which was originally displayed in the Index Museum.
Slide 19126.96.36.199 label says “188.8.131.52 Leucilla uter Polej.” and “B.M. 32 Arthur Dendy.”
Slide 19184.108.40.206 label says “220.127.116.11 Leucilla uter Pol. ‘Challenger Coll. Brit. Mus. “ and “B.M. 32 Arthur Dendy.”
Note: In the drawer with these slides are additional slides of this species and most of them say “B.M. 32” or “Brit. Mus. 32.” There is one slide which is labelled as a Type = 1818.104.22.168a. There are an additional 5 older slides with this number, one of which says ‘Station 209, Challenger’. There is one more modern slide preparation with this number 1822.214.171.124 but I cannot make out the name of the person who prepared it. There is also a Leucilla uter slide labelled ‘Challenger Coll. 84.4.22. 30-1a.’
Challenger station 209 was West of Cebu Island, Philippine Island, collected 22/01/1875, Challenger station 36 was Bermuda Island, Collected 22/04/1873, [details]
