General: While some of the recorded occurrences of stalked ruffled sponges may represent F. truncata, determination of these imaged specimens to species level on the basis of body form alone can be done only in very special situations where the benthic megafauna is well known and a single body form can be related directly to one species only.
Habitat description: Benthic.
