Info

Dercitus bucklandi (Bowerbank, 1858)

Dercitus bucklandi is usually found filling crevices in vertical overhanging rock faces. It has the appearance of a black membrane stretched across the back of the crevice.

The colour is black to dark grey-brown externally and a greyish-yellow internally. This sponge lives especially on limestone.

Note: Especially the gray and black sponges are look very similar, there is often confusion.
