Cellariaeforma Rogick, 1956

Type species: Cellaria aurorae Livingstone, 1928

Hayward (1995) placed Cellariaeforma as a synonym of Cellaria.
Gordon (pers. comm.) has pointed out that the zooids are closer to those of Melicerita, yet the branches are circular in cross-section. Consequently, Cellariaeforma is maintained as a monotypic genus.

This genus includes the species:

Cellariaeforma aurorae (Livingstone, 1928) Recent Antarctica WoRMS 986802
