Barrel sponge (Xestospongia testudinaria)

Barrel sponge (Xestospongia testudinaria), one of the largest sponges on coral reefs, and diver. Cannot be differentiated on any morphological basis, eg spicules, growth form, etc. from the well-known Caribbean barrel sponge Xestospongia muta, but the two sponges have chemical differences indicating they may be separate species.
