Family Darwinellidae Merejkowsky, 1879

Diagnosis. Darwinellidae which have a structured and separable cortex reinforced by a delicate reticulum of sand grains, supported by collagen tracts. Fibre structure is like that of Aplysilla , but in species that become erect, lamellate and branching, the support skeleton becomes branched (from Bergquist & Cook 2002b).
