A new species of Geodia, G. corticostylifera, is described from the Cabo Frio Region at the southwest Atlantic. An in situ population study allowed a detailed description of the species. The new species is distinguished from its closest relative, G. neptuni, by the presence of a category of cortical styles. A discussion, in which the new species is compared with all the tropical west Atlantic species of Geodia, is given, as well as a key to the Brazilian species of the genus.
