The specimen is characterized by a medulla highly penetrated with solenia and not separated from the cortex by a boundary of longitudinal canals; therefore, it belongs to the family Briareidae. The material studied differs from the genusBriareum, in which the colonies are unbranched, lobate, or digitate and the distinctive sclerites are triradiate. A key to the family Briareidae is given.
