Abstract
    A new species of the genus Crambe Vosmaer is described from the Alboran Sea. The features of this new sponge support the artificial grouping of the Lithistida. A new systematic position is proposed for Crambe Vosmaer into the new family Crambidae and some relationships with fossil genera traditionally regarded as lithistids are indicated. The anaxial nature of the sphaeroclonar desmas is discussed, claiming for a polyaxial origin of the sphaeroclones of the genus Crambe.
