Habitat
Small colonies aggregate on calcareous algae (Thalassia sp.).

Characteristics
Brown and can be covered by spicules, depending on exposure to the sun, which suggests the presence of symbiotic algae. Characterized by a non-pigmented zooid with a very long oral siphon bordered by six lobes, a branchial sac with anterior and posterior non-perforated areas, a short muscular process on the esophageal peduncle and a testis with one large follicle partially surrounded by a coiling sperm duct.
