Abstract

an extant monospecific genus of sphinctozoan sponges. The sphinctozoans were thought to be extinct since the Cretaceous until V. crypta was discovered off the northeastern coast of Australia in 1977. Important because of a rich Mesozoic fossil record, Vaceletia may be related to the ceractinomorph demosponges. Global distribution, Cambrian to Recent.
