Note(s): Chemical and morphological analyses of the Caribbean reef spongeXeslospongia mula have revealed that there is significant heterogeneity within this species. There are three distinct sterol compositions, as well as three morphological types, neither of which appears to be correlated with geographic locality, depth or microhabitat differences.
