The discovery of new species, a study of the type material of already described species and an analysis of the literature data call for an extensive rearrangement of the Family Tethyidae, whose last revision dates from Burton (1924). The rearrangement proposed here attributes to the Family eight genera: Tethya Lam. (type genus), Burtonitethya gen. nov., Columnitb Schrnidt, Halicometes Topent, Stellitethya gen nov., Tectitethya gen. nov, Tethycometss gen. nov. and Xenospongia Gray. The genus Aaptos is excluded from the Tethyidae. Three of the new genera have been established for species previously attributed to the genus Tefhya and two are new: Burtonitethya gemmiformis (Burton & Rao) and Tethycometes sibogaz sp nov. Five species, previously attributed to Tethya, are considered 'incertae sedis'. An analytical key and discussion of the evolution of the family are included.
