Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Morrow et al. (2012) propose to revive the family Stelligeridae to accommodate Stelligera and some other genera. They assign this to a newly defined order Axinellida, but this is considered a 'temporary' name (2012) until more clarity of the relationships of sponges of the 'G4 group' has been obtained. [details]
