Proceedings of the 6th International Sponge Conference, Rapallo 29 September – 5 October 2002.
Sponges of the family Polymastiidae inhabiting the Arctic region were revised and compared with the North Atlantic fauna. Twelve polymastiid species from 6 genera are recognised in the studied area, 10 of them are considered to be widely spread in both Arctic and Atlantic. The range of the 2 species is restricted only to the Arctic.
