Abstract
    The morphological characters utilized to establish the classificaion and to define the families and genera of the Petrosida order are analysed. An explanation of the value which the introduction of a new character - the silica level in relation to the dry weight of the sponge - has in classification and its relationship with traditional factors is given.
