Abstract
    Phorbas is a common genus with cosmopolitan distribution. A new species of sponge, Phorbas megasigma sp. nov. (Porifera: Poecilosclerida: Hymedesmiidae) is described from material collected during the third Spanish expedition on the study of the Antarctic benthos, 'Bentart 03'. Phorbas megasigma is closely related to P. nexus but differs in the possession of arcuate chelae and very big sigmata as microscleres.
