Publication
Nine species in five genera of the family Axinellidae, including three new species, Axinella loribellae sp. nov. A. sinoxea sp. nov. and Phakellia tropicalis sp. nov., are recorded for the tropical northern Australian waters of Western Australia, the Northern Territory and the Queensland coast as part of a revision of the order Halichondrida (Porifera: Demospongiae) in this region. One species, Dragmacidon durissimum (Dendy, 1905), generally found in the Indian Ocean, represents a new record for Australia. Taxonomic descriptions and discussion of those species are presented here. The position of Reniochalina within the Axinellidae is also discussed based on new evidence found in this and other studies.
