Remarks: Entered into MCZ Sponge Catalogue as Phakellia folium & tenax. One fragment is wrapped in a label with "Phakellia tenax n.sp." written in pencil, probably in Schmidt's handwriting. There is also a small Agassiz jar labelled Phakellia folium. It contains one sponge fragment. A label stating "Phakellia folium n. sp", also in Schmidt's handwriting, was found loose in the box containing the specimens. MCZ No. 162 also includes an octocoral fragment, wrapped in a piece of paper and labelled "Polyp."
