Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy This 'genus' was erected under the rules of the Phylocode, which does not recognize ranks or type species. The name is here adopted as valid since it is clearly of the genus group rank (encompassing at least two named species, Geodia robusta and Ecionemia sp.), but its position in the present classification is controversial. Phylocode and Linnean classifications show fundamental differences. The 'definition' of Geostelletta is quoted from the original paper: (branch-based) the most inclusive clade containing Geodia tuberosa (Topsent, 1892) and not Geodia phlegraei Sollas, 1880 and Geodia angulata von Lendenfeld, 1910. [details]
