Abstract


A specimen of the orchocladinid sponge Archaeoscyphia rectilinearis de Freitas (1989) is presented here as the first representative of the Anthaspidellidae from Wenlock strata on Gotland (Sweden). Other coeval occurrences are not yet known from the Silurian of Baltica. This specimen forms a link between the recently described sponge assemblage from Llandovery (Telychian) strata on Gotland and those from Wenlock to Ludlow strata from Arctic Canada. In addition, the specimen fills a gap in the fossil record of Silurian non-stromatoporoid sponges, which are poorly known worldwide.
