Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy A 'temporary name' status is given to taxa above the family level that need further corroboration or further clarification. These names appear in the literature but are as yet not generally accepted or in use. Accepted status will follow as soon as independent studies with sufficient taxon content have appeared. The case for Verongimorpha also hinges around the level of use of a competitive name, Myxospongiae, which was originally intended for only part of the sponges included in the Verongimorpha. [details]
