Classification No order of Holothuroidea is as diverse and problematic as the Dendrochirotida. The rank and circumscription of several clades in the Dendrochirotida have changed in recent publications, especially in Smirnov 2012, Thandar 2017, and Martins 2017. These changes have been followed to various degrees by recent taxonomic studies. Smirnov and Thandar diagnosed clades but did not evaluate them phylogenetically, while Martins pursued a morphological phylogenetic analysis. Miller et al's 2017 broad molecular phylogenetic study of holothuroids also included several dendrochirotids. Results from these studies are in conflict and indicate that our understanding of family level classification in dendrochirotids is inadequate. Several of the papers themselves note that several families are likely polyphyletic, while Michonneau & Paulay 2014 documented intraspecific variability in characters used to defined family-level taxa. Rather than follow this rapidly changing classification landscape, the WoRMS dendrochirotid classification will for now hold genera in their pre-2012 position, pending rigorous analyses. Names recently recognized at the family level are included in the database, but without assignment of species. [details]
