AbstractThe type and only specimen of Fibrocoelia tubantiensis Van Kempen, that was housed in the palaeontological collection of the Geological Institute of the University of Amsterdam, has been reposited in the Netherlands Centre for Biodiversity – Naturalis, Leiden, the Netherlands. Syltrochos pyramidoidalis Von Hacht, placed in an uncertain order and family by Finks & Rigby, is revised on the basis of new material. This has revealed that the skeleton is composed of spheroclones, so that the species has to be assigned to the Astylospongiidae von Zittel. The species name Carpospongia langei Von Hacht is invalid, being a junior synonym of Carpospongia pogrebowi Asatkin.
