status

 

Superfamily STYLOSPHAEROIDEA Haeckel, 1887 

sensu Dumitrica (1984)

Stylosphaerida Haeckel, 1887: 121 [as a family], 133 [as a subfamily].

Stylosphaerilae – Dumitrica 1984: 98 [as a sub-superfamily].

DIAGNOSIS. — Spumellarian consists of one to three shells with bipolar, bladed spines. The innermost shell is pyriform shape.

REMARKS

This superfamily consists of the Entapiidae   , Stylatractidae   , Stylosphaeridae   , and Tubosphaeridae Suzuki   , n. fam. However, both Stylatractidae   and Tubosphaeridae Suzuki   , n. fam. were excluded from the diagnosis above.The appropriate superfamily distribu - tions of the Tubosphaeridae Suzuki   , n.fam. and Stylatractidae   are uncertain because of the absence of a pear-shaped internal shell.
