A common Mediterranean species of Phorbas has been frequently identified under the specific name paupertas, referring to the sponge described as Hymeniacidon paupertas by Bowerbank 1866 from the north coasts of Europe. It is actually different from this species, and a new name, Phorbas topsenti sp.nov., is proposed. A description of the morphology, spicule complement and cytology is given. Another Mediterranean species of Phorbas, Phorbas tailliezi sp. nov. is described. 
Hymedesmia (Porifera: Demospongiae: Poecilosclerida) from Irish and Scottish cold-water coral reefs, with a description of five new species
TLDR
Five new species of the genus Hymedesmia are described from three areas of cold-water coral reef: Mingulay Reef Complex (Scotland, UK) and Rockall and Porcupine Banks (off UK and Irish coasts) and the data collected suggest that some HyMedesmia species may be restricted to particular bathymetric zones.
Updated checklist of sponges (Porifera) along the coasts of Turkey
TLDR
This study compiled the data from previous papers emphasizing sponge species on the Turkish coasts to date to find 3 species that are new records for the marine fauna of Turkey: Rhizaxinella elongata, Axinyssa digitata, and Terpios gelatinosa.
Sponge (Porifera) species from the Mediterranean coast of Turkey (Levantine Sea, eastern Mediterranean), with a checklist of sponges from the coasts of Turkey
TLDR
The present study deals with sponge species collected along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey in 2005, of which Phorbas plumosus is a new record for the eastern Mediterranean, and 8 species are new records for the marine fauna of Turkey.
New discoveries in Eastern Mediterranean mesophotic sponge grounds: updated checklist and description of three novel sponge species
Rich and diverse mesophotic sponge grounds were recently discovered along the easternmost part of the Mediterranean Sea (Israeli coast). Seven sites have been surveyed over the last decade
Exploring Chemical Diversity of Phorbas Sponges as a Source of Novel Lead Compounds in Drug Discovery
Porifera, commonly referred to as marine sponges, have stood out as major producers of marine natural products (MNPs). Sponges of the genus Phorbas have attracted much attention along years. They are
Antioxidant benzylidene 2-aminoimidazolones from the Mediterranean sponge Phorbas topsenti
Abstract Three new benzylidene 2-aminoimidazolones, named phorbatopsins A–C, have been isolated from the Mediterranean marine sponge Phorbas topsenti , in addition to the known astaxanthin,
Diversity and biological activities of the bacterial community associated with the marine sponge Phorbas tenacior (Porifera, Demospongiae)
The diversity of the cultivable microbiota of the marine sponge Phorbas tenacior frequently found in the Mediterranean Sea was investigated, and its potential as a source of antimicrobial,
Kinetid structure in sponge choanocytes of Spongillida in the light of evolutionary relationships within Demospongiae
TLDR
The kinetid structure of the sponges Spongilla lacustris, Ephydatia fluviatilis and Lubomirskia baikalensis, which belong to the recently established order Spongillida (Heteroscleromorpha), is studied and the nuclear location in the choanocyte (basal or apical), which correlates to the kinetd structure in Demospongiae is discussed.
Exploring Chemical Diversity of Phorbas Sponges as a Source of Novel Lead Compounds in Drug Discovery
Porifera, commonly referred to as marine sponges, are acknowledged as major producers of marine natural products (MNPs). Sponges of the genus Phorbas have attracted much attention over the years.
Shedding light on an East-Mediterranean mesophotic sponge ground community and the regional sponge fauna
Sponges are a diverse and abundant phylum, globally inhabiting many hard-bottom habitats. However, data on the East-Mediterranean sponge communities are scarce, outdated, and limited to the shallow
