Abstract
Metania reticulata (BOWERBANK 1863) and Metania spinata (CARTER 1881) have their status
confirmed, their synonymy enlarged and their redescription based upon study of new specimens collected
mainly from Amazonian waters. This work, together with the first one of this series (VOLKMER-RIBEIRO 1979) dedicated to the revision of the genus Metania GRAY, 1867 of freshwater sponges,
demonstrates that several characters can be picked out which may be considered as specific for the neotropical material due to their singleness and repeated occurence.
