Crambe crambe is a small orange encrusting sponge found in shallow littoral water around the Maltese Islands. It can grow both on well lit rocks as well as in shaded areas. The shape of the sponge is usually rounded at first but the shape becomes variable as the sponge grows in size. The sponge is easily identified in the field.
