In part synonymy. According to Kramp (1959) members of the Codonidae Haeckel, 1879 are now placed within the four families: Corynidae Johnston, 1836; Margelopsidae Uchida, 1927; Pennariidae McCrady, 1859; Tubulariidae Fleming, 1828. It is not clear at this point where the type species of the type genus resides, but if it can be placed that is where the family belongs. It may be that it is Codonium princeps Haeckel, 1879, which is currently placed in Sarsia, and if so that would make Codonidae synonym of only Corynidae (where Sarsia is currently placed)
ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
