Abstract: We introduce the notion of a well centered spherical quadrangle or WCSQ for short, describing a geometrical method to construct any WCSQ. We shall show that any spherical quadrangle with congruent opposite internal angles is congruent to a WCSQ. We may classify them taking in account the relative position of the spherical moons containing its sides. Proposition 3 describes the relations between well centered spherical moons and WCSQ which allow the refereed classification.
