Description

A freshwater sponge from Oakley Creek, Auckland.
Found under a basalt in the fast flowing part of Oakley Creek.

My first thought was freshwater bryozoan but I could see that this was made of fragments of silica which is a typical feature of a sponge.
I am not sure if this is a native species.
There is a very similar species, Ephydatia mulleri in United States so possibly this is it or its relative, which might be introduced.
(https://carnegiemnh.org/stalking-the-freshwater-sponges-of-western-pennsylvania/)

Apparently this species is first on Inaturalist and also this is the second observation of this family from New Zealand in Inaturalist community.
