Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Redmond et al. (2013) propose a suborder status for this group in an order Tetractinellida (temporary name). We will await further evidence before implementing this proposal. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Cardenas et al. 2011 proposed changes into the classification, based on an integrative analysis of molecular and morphological characters of a limited set of taxa of this order. While we recognize the value of these proposals, we will await with implementing the more dramatic changes until results are confirmed by more studies and more taxa.  [details]
