  1. 1 One sequence of Auletta in Erpenbeck et al. [39] groups with Acanthella and Phakellia ventilabrum.
  2. 2 28S sequences of Ulosa digitata suggest that this genus could belong to the Suberitida, as it groups with Halichondriidae [5].
  3. 3 Redmond et al. [10] show D. spinipoculum (type species) clustering with Raspailiidae whilst D. bismarckensis groups with Podospongiidae. It is possible that the 18S sequence of D. spinipoculum in Redmond et al. [10] is a result of contamination and therefore we retain Diacarnus in Podospongiidae.
