Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification Neave records the genus as originally placed in Coelenterata [Cnidaria, presumably as a coral], but later it was treated in Porifera as a fossil sclerosponge, and finally it became reclassified as Cirratulidae in Annelida, perhaps related to Dodecaceria, based on analysis of Diplochaetetes mexicanus (not the type species) [details]
