Abstract
    A new species of toxic marine sponge, Biemna laboutei sp. nov., belonging to the order Poecilosclerida, family Desmacellidae, is described from the outer-reef slope of Nosy-Be, Madagascar. The species is the sixth known desmacellid to have toxic (dermatitis-producing) properties. It is compared with other desmacellids from the Indian Ocean region.
