Abstract: Sponge aggregation was studied in Tethya aurantia focusing on the importance of temperature and divalent ions in the developmental process. Results regarding these two factors paralleled those done by Humphreys on different sponges (1963). Also, species specificity of cells was tested by combining T. aurantia with Hymenamphiastra cyanocrypta and Acarnus erithracus.
