Abstract

Pheronematidae Gray (Hexactinellida: Amphidiscophora) contains six genera: Pheronema; Platylistrum; Poliopogon; Schulzeviella; Semperella and Sericolophus. The family is well differentiated from other Amphidiscophora by the prevalence of pentactines as choanosomal megascleres and usually by the presence of two-toothed anchorate basalia.
