The systematic position of Spongia fasciculata Pallas, 1766, Ircinia variabilis (Schmidt, 1862) and Ircinia felix (Duchassaing & Michelotti, 1864) is discussed and emended, following the study of available type material and specimens recently collected in the Mediterranean Sea, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. The decisions and suggestions of previous authors on this topic are also considered and discussed. Our final decision is a validation of I. felix and a recombination indicating I. variabilis as the type species for the genus Ircinia Nardo, 1847.
