sensu Won & Iams (2002)  

Echidnina Bengtson, 1986: 202   . — Won & Iams 2002: 24.

TYPE SPECIES. — Echidnina runnegari Bengtson, 1986   ( Bengtson 1986: 202, fig. 4A-F, 11E).

AGE AND LOCATION OF TYPE MATERIAL. — Upper Cambrian, Mungerebar Limestone, western Queensland, Australia.

TAXON CODE. — 053.

STATUS. — Valid.

DIAGNOSIS. — “Globular spiny bodies, 210-300 µm in diameter (excluding protruding spicule rays), built up of disorderly arranged, siliceous, slender, hexactinellid-type spicules up to 5 µm in thickness. No axial filament visible in spicules. Interior of globules hollow.” ( Bengtson 1986: 202).

REMARKS

Won & Iams (2002) emended the diagnosis, specifying that the individual spicules may be interlocked or fused, maintaining their individual spicular structure, while forming a hollow spherical shell. They also removed reference to sponge spicule terminology, as it was originally assumed by Bengtson that this genus was a poriferan.
