Over the past few years, there has been growing interest among the sponge community in the phylogenetic position of the Homoscleromorpha (i.e. within or outside the class Demospongiae). Recent molecular analyses clearly show that the Homoscleromorpha forms a distinct clade separated from the Demospongiae and is composed of two families, Oscarellidae and Plakinidae. Within the currently more widely accepted hypothesis of a monophyletic Porifera, we formally propose here to raise Homoscleromorpha… Expand

Figures from this paper

Descriptions of new sponge species and genus, including aspiculate Plakinidae, overturn the Homoscleromorpha classification
TLDR
The need for a detailed re-examination of Homoscleromorpha is indicated using this integrative taxonomic approach and two new species of Plakinidae from submarine caves in the Caribbean Sea are described: Plakina arletensis sp. Expand
Proposal for a revised classification of the Demospongiae (Porifera)
TLDR
The deletion of polyphyletic taxa, the use of resurrected or new names for new clades and the proposal of new family groupings will improve the comparability of studies in a wide range of scientific fields using sponges as their object of study. Expand
Integrative taxonomic description of Plakina kanaky, a new polychromatic sponge species from New Caledonia (Porifera: Homoscleromorpha)
TLDR
The present work demonstrates that integrative taxonomy should be used in order to revise the entire Plakinidae family and especially the non-monophyletic genus Plakina, with the most parsimonious conclusion being to propose a single new species P. kanaky sp. Expand
First Detailed Record of Symbiosis Between a Sea Anemone and Homoscleromorph Sponge, With a Description of Tempuractis rinkai gen. et sp. nov. (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Actiniaria: Edwardsiidae)
TLDR
This is the first report of symbiosis between a sea anemone and a homoscleromorph sponge and the benefit of this symbiosis is discussed on the basis of observations of live specimens, both in the aquarium and field. Expand
Five new species of Homoscleromorpha (Porifera) from the Caribbean Sea and re-description of Plakina jamaicensis
Five new species of Homoscleromorpha (Porifera) of four genera, Oscarella, Plakortis, Plakina and Corticium, are described from vertical walls of reef caves at depths ranging from 23 to 28 m in theExpand
The buds of Oscarella lobularis (Porifera): a new convenient model for sponge cell and developmental biology
TLDR
A new sponge model is developed: the buds of the Oscarella lobularis (class Homoscleromorpha) that supplements the two other most famous sponge models Amphimedon queenslandica and Ephydatia muelleri, both belonging to the class Demospongiae. Expand
The integrative taxonomic approach applied to porifera: a case study of the homoscleromorpha.
TLDR
This paper shows how various datasets based on the external morphology, anatomy, cytology, spicule shapes, geography, reproduction, genetic sequences, and metabolomics of homoscleromorph sponges were assembled and used to describe new species and elucidate their phylogenetic relationships and their phylogenetics position within the phylum Porifera. Expand
Molecular Phylogenetic Evaluation of Classification and Scenarios of Character Evolution in Calcareous Sponges (Porifera, Class Calcarea)
TLDR
The taxonomy of Calcarea is in desperate need of a thorough revision, which cannot be achieved by considering morphology alone or relying on a taxon sampling based on the current classification below the subclass level, according to the results. Expand
Systematics and Molecular Phylogeny of the Family Oscarellidae (Homoscleromorpha) with Description of Two New Oscarella Species
TLDR
This study highlights the difficulties of species identification in skeleton-less sponges and, more generally, in groups where morphological characters are scarce and adopts a multi-marker approach, which is highly suitable for these groups. Expand
Discovery of missing link between demosponges and hexactinellids confirms palaeontological model of sponge evolution
TLDR
A new species of fossil sponge is described, Conciliospongia anjiensis gen. et sp. Expand

Molecular Phylogeny Restores the Supra-Generic Subdivision of Homoscleromorph Sponges (Porifera, Homoscleromorpha)
TLDR
This study proposes to restore the pre-1995 subdivision of Homoscleromorpha into two families: Plakinidae Schulze, 1880 for spiculate species and Oscarellidae Lendenfeld, 1887 for aspiculate species that had been rejected after the description of the genus Pseudocorticium. Expand
Sponges without skeleton: A new Mediterranean genus of Homoscleromorpha (Porifera, Demospongiae)
TLDR
A new genus of aspiculate homoscleromorph, Pseudocorticium, is described along with the new species P. jarrei found in a littoral cave located in the western Mediterranean Sea (France), which differs from Oscarella in its morphology, anatomy, and cytology. Expand
The Homoscleromorph sponge Oscarella lobularis, a promising sponge model in evolutionary and developmental biology
TLDR
The specific features that make O. lobularis a promising homoscleromorph sponge model for evolutionary and developmental researches are explored. Expand
On the molecular phylogeny of sponges (Porifera)
TLDR
While molecular phylogenies of hexactinellids corroborate previous morphological hypotheses, phylogenetic hypotheses based on rDNA sequence analyses in Calcarea largely conflict with the previous, typological classifications. Expand
Taxonomic revision of the Mediterranean Plakina Schulze (Porifera, Demospongiae, Homoscleromorpha)
TLDR
Accurate analysis of the internal anatomy and of the shape and ramification pattern of lophose spicules in scanning electron microscopy provides new, powerful morphological criteria for species discrimination in Plakina, thus generating an increase in estimates of the biodiversity of plakinids. Expand
A new species of Oscarella (Demospongiae: Plakinidae) from the Western Sea of Japan
Oscarella malakhovi sp. nov. is described from the waters of Peter the Great Bay (northwestern Sea of Japan, Russia) at depths between 0.4–4 m from a rocky coast. This is the first record of theExpand
A New Species of Oscarella (Demospongiae: Plakinidae) from California
TLDR
A new species of Oscarella Vosmaer, 1877 is described from a rocky coast and marine aquariums in central California and analyze its spatial distribution and temporal fluctuations to determine if it is a non-indigenous species, giving low support to the hypothesis that it is an invasive species. Expand
Biochemical genetic divergence and systematics in sponges of the genera Corticium and Oscarella (Demospongiae: Homoscleromorpha) in the Mediterranean Sea
TLDR
It was found that the new sponge was reproductively isolated from sympatric C. candelabrum, with 6 of 16 loci proving diagnostic, and it was concluded that all homoscleromorph sponges should be placed in the single family Plakinidae. Expand
Reconstructing ordinal relationships in the Demospongiae using mitochondrial genomic data.
TLDR
This work assembled a mitochondrial genomic dataset comprising all orders of demosponges that includes 17 new and five previously published complete demosponge mitochondrial genomes and assembled a modified method for the analysis of gene order data that works well when translocation of tRNA genes are more frequent than other rearrangements. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Demospongiae: implications for classification and scenarios of character evolution.
TLDR
The topology derived from molecular data provides a basis for proposing a new classification of Demospongiae s.s., and suggests a reverse polarity of some characters, with respect to traditional conceptions: viviparity, presence of monaxon spicules and of spongin appear to be ancestral, whereas ovip parity, and presence of tetraxon spicule appear as derived characters.
