Description Colour in life: grey-brown to green-brown sometimes with globular appearance (Clark & Rowe, 1971). The colour is always grey, uniform or with variable brown bands or with a series of 8-10 pairs of brown blotches along the back or with many black spots (Tortonese, 1980). It should be noted that the spicules of various specimens which have been attributed to H. paradalis show a wide range of form and the species is therefore in need of review (Sloan et al., 1979).
General distribution: from the Red Sea to Hawaii (Tortonese, 1980); tropical, Indo-west Pacific Ocean, depth range 0-?10 m. (Rowe & Gates, 1995).
Also distributed in Sandwich Is. (Selenka, 1867); Iranian Gulf (Heding, 1940); SE Arabia, W India, Pakistan, Maldive area, Ceylon, Bay of Bengal, East Indies, north Australia, Philippine, China, south Japan, South Pacific Is. and Hawaiian Is. (Clark & Rowe, 1971); Australia (Rowe & Gates, 1995).
Ecology: benthic, inshore, detritus feeder, deposit feeder (Rowe & Gates, 1995). [details]
