Two new species of sponge, Clathria (Clathria) ramus sp. nov. and Clathria (Clathria) ieoensis sp. nov. are described from Jeju Island of Korea. Clathria (Clathria) ramus sp. nov. is branching with a stalk, yellow in life, with small oscules. Clathria (C.) ieoensis sp. nov. is thickly encrusting, soft and compressible texture, and color is red and dark brown after fixation in ethanol.
