Occurrence of Paraleucilla magna Klautau et al., 2004 (Porifera: Calcarea) in Malta

The calcareous sponge Paraleucilla magna, first recorded from the Mediterranean in 2001 (southern Tyrrhenian, southern Adriatic and northwest Ionian coasts of Italy), is recorded from Malta (Central Mediterranean) where it was found forming part of the fouling community on small, surface marker buoys around a fish-farm in Marsaxlokk Bay.
