Resumo: Although representatives of the phylum Porifera are abundant in the coastal waters of Northeast Brazil, only a few scientists have attempted to study the sponges in this área. Carter (1888), writing on the Porifera of Fernando de Noronha, and de Laubenfels (1956) in "Preliminary Discussion of the Sponges of Brazil", classified certain marine sponges. An attempt is made here to describe some marine sponges from Brazil, specifically those found of f the coast of Fortaleza (Ceará, Brazil - 3D55'S and 38°31'W). The Porifera in this study, with the exception of one specimen, are described from dry material collected over a period of several years by various individuals. No records are available concerning the color or consistency of the living specimens, or in some cases, the depth from which the sponge was taken. Many of the specimens were incomplete and often only one sample of a particular species was retained. Thus, in most cases, the sponges received only a tentative identification. I am especially grateful to Dr. O. Bakus, of the University of Southern California, and Dr. K. Rutzler, of the Smithsonian Institution, for verification of the Demospongiae.
