    The study of new collections of Amazonian freshwater sponges demonstrated that Trochospongilla pennsylvanica (Potts 1882) is a cosmopolitan species, that Trochospongilla variabilis Bonetto & Ezcurra De Drago (1973) occurs as far north in the neotropical region as the Amazon basin and that Spongilla spoliata n.sp. and Radiospongilla amazonensis n.sp. share a good number of morphological similarities with two oriental species.
