Two new records of sponges in the genus Geodia were identified from Singapore in the estuarine Johor Straits. The white, encrusting, cushion-like G. distincta Lindgren was common in shallow water from the intertidal zone to 20 m deep, whilst the larger G. picteti Topsent was collected from the shallow subtidal and possessed upright, finger-like processes extending from a base that is attached to gravel and sand. An identification key to all 11 species recorded from the South China Sea is presented. Inherent difficulties associated with Geodia identification are highlighted and discussed.
