Family Aplysinellidae Bergquist, 1980

Genus Suberea Bergquist, 1995

Diagnosis. Aplysinellidae with coarse irregular dendritic fibres in which bark and pith elements are present but the pith predominates. The bark is strongly laminated and very brittle. Fibres can be very thick and render the texture of the sponge interior very rough to the touch. Dense collagen reinforces the matrix, making the sponges hard, to just compressible. The surface is smooth or conulose and the sponge form massive, sometimes stalked or branching (from Bergquist & Cook 2002a).
