The Australian marine sponge genus Axos Gray (Hemiasterellidae) is revised. Two species are recognised, A. cliftoni Gray and A. flabelliformis Carter, and are differentiated on the morphology of euaster microscleres. Reproductive products of A. cliftoni are described. A. spinipoculum Carter is redescribed from the holotype and transferred to Latrunculia Bocage. The holotype of A. anchorata Carter, and recent specimens of A. fibulata Carter are described, and the species are retained in Plumocolumella Burton and Gelliodes Ridley, respectively, following Burton (1934). The family Hemiasterellidae is reviewed.
