A new Halisarca, H. caerulea n. sp., is described and its ultrastructural characters are compared with those of H. dujardini Johnston and H. ectofibrosa Vacelet et al. These sponges seem to be characterised at the ultrastructural level, by a granulo-fibrillar matrix in which are embedded tight bundles of collagen fibrils and the cellular elements. This matrix originates from disintegration of spherulous cells. Although a somewhat similar structure has been observed in the family Chondrosiidae, the affinities of the Halisarcidae remain uncertain.
