Abstract


Two chambered hypercalcified sponges, Colospongia cribrifera nov. sp. and Parastylothalamia minima nov. sp. are described from the Norian reef boulders exposed around the town of Terziler, Taurus Mountains, south Turkey. Colospongia cribrifera is characterized by partly perforated and partly imperforated chamber walls and additionally sieve-like plates or cribribulla in the chamber exowalls. Parastylothalamia minima is one of the smallest chambered sponge known in the fossil record. The siphonate sponge is characterized by evenly perforated chamber walls and by scattered pillars within the chamber interiors.
