Taxonomy Democlavia is a name for the so-called 'G4' group of Demospongiae, which encompasses the sponges not belonging to Keratosa, Verongimorpha/Myxospongiae and Haploscleromorpha. It is defined vaguely as sponges more closely related to Clathria (Microciona) prolifera than to Amphimedon queenslandica, leaving its position vis-à-vis the freshwater sponges undecided. Much work remains to be done to confirm that this is a monophyletic assemblage. [details]

Taxonomy 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.  [details]
