Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription This genus is well characterized by its rod-shaped spicules with two pairs of obliquely placed horizontal arms and two vertical apophyses. The genus was formerly regarded as monotypic, but due to the work of mostly Hansen (1956, 1975) and Belyaev (1971, 1975), the genus currently contains 13 nominal and three unnamed species. Some scanty material collected off the south-west coast of southern Africa is here referred to E. gracilis Belyaev, 1975. [details]
