Anyone? Anyone? Anyone?
Iotrochota birotulata is a species of demosponge in the phylum Porifera. It is found in shallow waters in the Caribbean Sea. It is commonly referred to as "finger sponge".
I picked up a couple bunches of this interesting sponge at local fave, AKA Stella Gray this week. I added each to the apothecary jars in the niches between the parlor and stair parlor. I adore the height each finger sponge gives to the arrangement. Bleached white starfish fill the base.
The finger sponge add uniqueness to my nautical curiosity collections.
Finger sponges, y'all!
