Original Description
[invalid name] Shell nearly cylindrical, five times as long as broad, with thorny surface. Spongy framework compact, everywhere of equal structure, with small meshes, scarcely broader than the bars.

Length of the shell 0.24, breadth 0.05.

Editors' Notes
Haeckel listed Spongurus phalanga under the subgeneric name Spongurantha, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.

Spongurus phalanga is a new name here introduced by Haeckel for Spongurus cylindricus Haeckel in Stöhr, 1880. However, Pantanelli and De Stefani in 1880 had already given the name Spongurus stoehri to the speciment. Spongurus phalanga is thus an invalid name.

Stratigraphic information for LM21 from Riedel, 1959, p.287.
