Identification The genus name was erected in a preliminary paper for an undescribed sponge assigned to the family 'Suberitinidae'. No species name was mentioned, so the genus remains without type species and the name thus becomes a nomen nudum according to ICZN 12.2.5. In the definitive follow up paper, Merejkowsky likewise did not provide a species name, but his remarks about the sponge he referred to as Clathroscula suggested to De Laubenfels (1935: 152) that this resembled a species belonging to the Polymastiidae. [details]
