    The hexactinellid family Caulophacidae possesses no unique features to distinguish it from Rossellidae, and hence it is proposed to revise the order Lyssacinosa by abandoning the family Caulophacidae and assigning its genera to Rossellidae, subfamily Rosellidae (Caulophacus, Caulodiscus and Caulophacella) and subfamily Lanuginellinae (Sympagella).
