A new species of Thorecta (Porifera: Demospongiae) from the western Atlantic, with remarks on the taxonomy of the genus
The family Thorectidae includes 23 valid genera and 130 species, characterized by the presence of laminated fibres and diplodal choanocytye chambers. Currently the genus Thorecta comprisesExpand
Happy relationships between marine sponges and sediments – a review and some observations from Australia

TLDR
The present publication reviews available literature and provides observations on natural and beneficial interactions of sponges with sediments, distinguishing several strategies: saving energy through sediment incorporation, reducing or replacing spicule production, and living at least partially embedded in sediments (psammobiosis).

Mycale species (Porifera: Poecilosclerida) of Northwest Africa and the Macaronesian Islands
TLDR
A taxonomic monograph of sponges of the genus Mycale is presented based on collections assembled by Dutch expeditions to the Northwest African region, including the offshore islands in the neighbouring Atlantic, and a key to all species is presented. Expand
Taxonomy, biogeography and DNA barcodes of Geodia species (Porifera, Demospongiae, Tetractinellida) in the Atlantic boreo-arctic region
Geodia species north of 60 degrees N in the Atlantic appeared in the literature for the first time when Bowerbank described Geodia barretti and G.macandrewii in 1858 from western Norway. Since thenExpand
Two new species in the family Axinellidae (Porifera, Demospongiae) from British Columbia and adjacent waters
TLDR
An amended genus diagnosis for Auletta is proposed to account for the variability among species in principal spicules that form the ascending tracts to be either oxeas, styles or strongyles rather than just oxeas. Expand
Sponge biodiversity of South Georgia island with descriptions of fifteen new species
TLDR
Sponge samples taken by SCUBA diving from sixteen sites on the north coast of South Georgia island increase the previously reported low spongeendemicity in South Georgia, which now better aligns with the high endemicity of other groups. Expand

Three new species of Strongylacidon (Chondropsidae: Poecilosclerida: Demospongiae) from north-east Brazil, with new morphological characters for the family
TLDR
Three new species of Strongylacidon from north-east Brazil are described and new morphological characters, viz., oxychaetes and spined arcuate isochelae, are added to the definition of the genus Strongyl Acidon and of the family Chondropsidae. Expand
