AbstractHaliclona (Haliclona) epiphytica n.sp., a new species of seaweed-dwelling sponge of the family Chalinidae (Porifera, Demospongiae, Haplosclerida) from the Colombian Caribbean, is described. As the only member of the subgenus Haliclona (hitherto referred to as the ‘oculata’ group by De Weerdt, 1989) in the Caribbean Sea, it is distinguished from other chalinid species in this area by its regular, anisotropic, ladder-like skeleton of short and robust oxeas.
