Summary: Siliceous sponge spicules are present and often diverse in sediments drilled by ODP Leg 120. The sponge spicule assemblages are tabulated for Holes 748A and 748B. Neogene assemblages consist mostly of monaxons, whereas chelae, amphidiscs, discorhabds, polyaxons, and other spicule morphologies are often abundant in middle Eocene to Upper Oligocene sediments.
