  • Two new species of the genus Stelletta (Astrophorida: Ancorinidae), S. spinulosa n. sp. and S. calyx n. sp., are described from the waters around Gageodo Island (Sohuksando) and Ulleungdo Island, Korea. S. spinulosa n. sp. is similar to S. crassispicula (Sollas, 1886) in the feature of entire animal, but differs from it in the shape of orthotriaene and the form and size of oxyasters. S. calyx n. sp. resembles to S. crater Dendy, 1924 in the shape of sponge, but the new species has four size categories of oxyaster whereas S. carter has no oxyaster.

  • A new marine sponge in the family Ancorinidae, Penares hongdoensis n. sp. was collected from Hongdo Island, Korea by SCUBA diving in 2004. P. hongdoensis n. sp. is closely related to P. cortius de Laubenfels, 1930 in their spicules. However, they differ in kind and size of spicules and growth form. The dichotriaene rhabds of new species are larger than that of P. cortius. And the new species has oxyaster, but P. cortius has oxyspheraster. Although the growth forms of both species are irregular massive, this new species shows conspicuous long projection toward upper part.

  • Two species in the genus Stelletta, Stelletta crusta n. sp and Stelletta maxima Thiele, 1898 have been Collected from Geomundo Island. Stelletta crusta n. sp is similar to Stelletta tetrafurcata Hoshino, 1981 in the clade of the dichotriaenes which is trifurcate or multifurcate but both species differ in spicule size and composition. Stelletta maxima is first recorded in the Korean fauna.

  • A new species of the genus Jaspis (Demospongiae: Astrophorida: Ancorinidae), Jaspis coreana n. sp., is described on the specimen collected from Geomundo Island, Korea during September 1995 to March 2002 by SCUBA diving. This new species is characterized by two sponges association which is completely covered with Poecilastra wondoensis except for oscules. This new species is similar to J. wondoensis in its spicules type, but different in their spicules size, form of oscules and sponge colour. J. coreana has a large oxyasters and longer megascleres than J. wondoensis, oscule cluster and golden yellow colour in life.

  • Two sponges, Stelletta subtilis (Sollas, 1886) and Stryphnus sollasi n. sp., were collected from depth of 24-30 m at Jeju-do Island and Chuja-do Island by SCUBA diving from July 2003 to June 2010. The new species Stryphnus sollasi n. sp is similar with Stryphnus niger Sollas, 1886 in the composition of spicules, however they differ in colour and spicule size. This new species has smaller oxeas and larger oxyasters than those of S. niger. This new species has two size categories of oxyaster but S. niger has one size category of oxyaster. The colour of S. sollasi n. sp is white, but the latter puce black. Stelletta subtilis (Sollas, 1886) is first recorded in Korean fauna.
