Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Since the publication of the Systema Porifera, thirteen years of predominantly molecular work has been performed to test the phylogenetic framework of its classification. This has resulted now (2015) in dramatically changed insights, especially in the class Demospongiae, demanding adapatation of the classification. A new subclass and ordinal division was proposed by Morrow & Cárdenas (2015) and is here adopted. The class Demospongiae now has three subclasses, Verongimorpha, Keratosa and Heteroscleromorpha, and each of these has a strongly altered set of orders.  [details]
