Wounds caused by predation and/or physical disturbances to sessile marine animals are common. Consequently, these organisms had to develop strategies to endure such injuries and survive in such a dynamic environment. Sponges are known to possess one of the greatest capacities of regeneration among living metazoans, but this feature has been largely studied only in Demospongiae. In Calcarea, very few species have been investigated. Hence, we analysed the regeneration and speed rates from two regions (osculum and choanosome) of the body of a calcareous sponge: Ernstia sp. Only the osculum regenerated until the end of the experiment, while the choanosome simply cicatrized. Calcareous sponges seem to have a polarized regeneration closely related to their external morphology and level of individuality and integration. A brief review of the regeneration capacity in Calcarea is presented.
