Editors' Notes
[As far as is known no type species has been designated from among those included at the time of the genric definition. Species included at that time are Haliomma crenatum Ehrenberg, 1838 and H. medusa Ehrenberg, 1838.

Petrushevskaya and Kozlova, 1979, p.91, designate Haliomma inerme Haeckel, 1860 (Haeckel, 1862, pl.24, fig.5) as the type species of this genus, without any explanation about their new choice. This species has already been designated as type species of THECOSPHAERELLA by Campbell (SD [Campbell,1954, p.D50])]
