Selçuk Altınsaçlı*, Juan Rueda Sevilla & Songül Altınsaçlı

This study was carried out to determine porifera fauna of the freshwater Lake Saklıgöl. A single freshwater sponge species (Spongilla lacustris, Porifera, Spongillidae) has been observed in alkaline, well oxygenated and clear hard water with low electrical conductivity of the karstic and shallow Lake of Saklıgöl, Turkey. Spongilla lacustris became more dominant in June 2013 than in other months. Results showed that Lake Saklıgöl is an important habitat for Spongilla lacustris in this region.
Spicules and gemmules of Spongilla lacustris (Linnaeus 1759) collected in Lake Saklıgöl A-C: gemmules; D-E: spiny gemmosclere; F-G: megasclere smooth oxea, H: megasclere and microsclere (acanthoxeas)
