AbstractA new sponge species Callyspongia (Euplacella) biru spec. nov. is described from various locations within Indonesia (NE Bali, SW & NE Sulawesi and NE Kalimantan). The species is assigned to the subgenus Euplacella of the genus Callyspongia because it has brushes of spicules on the nodes of its double-meshed ectosomal skeleton. The species is discussed and compared with relevant Callyspongia records from other Indonesian and neighbouring Indo-Pacific areas.
