Author's notes

not sure this is a sponge, it's some kind of encrusting algae? perhaps it should be in seaweeds?

I'm guessing it is an encrusting sponge but do not know what species

I don't have any good ID books for sponges etc do you know of any?

No I don't have any good ID books for sponges. However from what I have read it might take an expert to look at the sample under the microscope - the spicules evidently are needed to identify the species and maybe other things as well.
