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.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Spongillina are proposed to have ordinal status in Demospongiae, as molecular sequence analysis indicates that Marine Haplosclerida and freshwater sponges do not form a monophyletic group. Apparently Spongillida are part of a larger 'G4' group unlike the Marine Haplosclerida which form a subclass of their own (Haploscleromorpha). [details]
