Editor's comment The tree in Osborn et al. (2012) indicates additional unnamed genera species in this Family. They are currently being described (see Priede et al. 2012). [details]

Group description Osborn et al. suggests The Torquaratoridae likely evolved from near-shore ancestors, and then radiated in the deep sea. [details]
