    Data consist of a species name considered valid or status unknown, followed by author and year of erection. Obvious synonyms (based on general consensus of past authors) are omitted, but all doubtful or contested cases are included. No subsequent records or distribution data are given. The entries are in most cases not recently validated, so are based on opinions of previous authors or experience of the present list author. Care should be taken when using these entries for other purposes than simple reference data. There is no guarantee for completeness of the species list. The system followed here is that of the most recent insights in the higher taxa classification. A project in process of near completion is the Systema Porifera initiative (editors J.N.A. Hooper & R.W.M. van Soest). This will result in a 25 author collective revision of all Porifera taxa above the species level, including keys to their identification. Until this volume appears, the present list remains tentative as far as classification and the use of genus and family names is concerned.
