The term Radiata is no longer accepted, as it united several different groupings of animals that do not form a monophyletic group under current views of animal phylogeny. The similarities once offered in justification of the taxon, such as radial symmetry, are now taken to be the result of either incorrect evaluations by early researchers or convergent evolution, rather than an indication of a common ancestor. Because of this, the term is used mostly in a historical context.BOOK, Hadzi, J., The Evolution of the Metazoa, 1963, The Macmillan Company, New York, NY, USA, 0080100791, 56–57, In the early 19th century, Georges Cuvier united Ctenophora and Cnidaria in the Radiata (Zoophytes).BOOK, Cuvier, Georges, Georges Cuvier, Le Règne Animal Distribué Selon son Organisation, pour Servir de Base à l’Histoire Naturelle des Animaux et d’Introduction à l'Anatomie Comparée, 1817, Déterville, Paris, Thomas Cavalier-Smith, in 1983, redefined Radiata as a subkingdom consisting of Myxozoa, Placozoa, Cnidaria and Ctenophora.BOOK, Cavalier-Smith, Thomas, Thomas Cavalier-Smith, A 6-kingdom classification and a unified phylogeny. in Endocytobiology II, 1983, Walter De Gruyter, 3110086603, 1027–1034, Lynn Margulis and K. V. Schwartz later redefined Radiata in their Five Kingdom classification, this time including only Cnidaria and Ctenophora.BOOK, Margulis, Lynn, Lynn Margulis, Five Kingdoms: An illustrated Guide to the Phyla of Life on Earth, 1988, W. H. Freeman, New York, 0716730278, registration,weblink This definition is similar to the historical descriptor Coelenterata, which has also been proposed as a group encompassing Cnidaria and Ctenophora.JOURNAL, Philippe, Hervé, Derelle, Romain, Lopez, Philippe, Pick, Kerstin, Borchiellini, Carole, Boury-Esnault, Nicole, Vacelet, Jean, Renard, Emmanuelle, Houliston, Evelyn, Quéinnec, Eric, Da Silva, Corinne, Wincker, Patrick, Le Guyader, Hervé, Leys, Sally, Jackson, Daniel J., Schreiber, Fabian, Erpenbeck, Dirk, Morgenstern, Burkhard, Wörheide, Gert, Manuel, Michaël, Phylogenomics Revives Traditional Views on Deep Animal Relationships, Current Biology, April 2009, 19, 8, 706–712, 10.1016/j.cub.2009.02.052, 19345102, JOURNAL, Dunn, Casey W., Leys, Sally P., Haddock, Steven H.D., Steven Haddock, The hidden biology of sponges and ctenophores, Trends in Ecology & Evolution, May 2015, 30, 5, 282–291, 10.1016/j.tree.2015.03.003, Although radial symmetry is usually given as a defining characteristic in animals that have been classified in this group, there are clear exceptions and qualifications. Echinoderms, for example, exhibit unmistakable bilateral symmetry as larvae, and are now in the Bilateria. Ctenophores exhibit biradial or rotational symmetry, defined by tentacular and pharyngeal axes, on which two anal canals are located in two diametrically opposed quadrants.JOURNAL, Martindale, Mark, Finnerty, J.R., Henry, J.Q., The Radiata and the evolutionary origins of the bilaterian body plan, Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, September 2002, 24, 3, 358–365, 10.1016/s1055-7903(02)00208-7, Some species within the cnidarian class Anthozoa are bilaterally symmetric (For example, Nematostella vectensis). It has been suggested that bilateral symmetry may have evolved before the split between Cnidaria and Bilateria, and that the radially symmetrical cnidarians have secondarily evolved radial symmetry, meaning the bilaterality in cnidarian species like N. vectensis has a primary origin.JOURNAL, Finnerty, J.R., Pang, K., Burton, P., Paulson, D., Martindale, M.Q., Origins of bilateral symmetry: Hox and dpp expression in a sea anemone, Science, 28 May 2004, 304, 5675, 1335–1337, 10.1126/science.1091946, 15131263, {{Wikispecies|Radiata}}The differing definitions assigned by zoologists are listed in the table.{| class="wikitable sortable"
