Abstract:During the course of a study of the marine
sponges of the San Juan Archipelago, Washington,
the discovery of several specimens of
Tedania gurjanovae Koltun (Koltun, 1958 :65 ,
fig. 20) was of special interest because of the
opportunity provided to observe its larval metamorphosis.
This species had been known previously
only from the eastern part of the Tatar
Strait, off Sakhalin, USSR, at depths of 60 to
100 m (Koltun, 1958, 1959) . The present
specimens (No. 30, 58, 90, 112, lot 163) were
dredged in depths of 73 to 198 m in President
Channel and San Juan Channel, San Juan Archipelago, Washington, and now reside in this
writer's personal collection. An account of the
morphology, larval metamorphosis, ecology, and
taxonomy of the Washington population is
given here.
