Fossil Identification System
Superregnum: Eukaryota Woese et al. 1990
Regnum: Animalia Linnaeus, 1758
Phylum: Porifera Grant, 1836
Species: Carpospongia pogrebovi Asatkin, 1949
Ulrich von Hacht, observed this sponge in 1994 and named it after Martin Lange, a collector of fossil sponges from erratics on Sylt: Carpospongia langei. However, in 1949 Asatkin had described the same sponge in the former Soviet Union from the bedrock of Estonia. At the time, the Russian language and the Iron Curtain, stood in the way of exchanging the knowledge, even for fossil sponges.
