I don't agree with putting the new species in a new genus! Genera cannot be correlated consistently with degree or "depth" of divergence, and really only serve to separate convenient monophyletic groups, but there is no gain in separating two species into two separate genera.

In case anypne interested missed it, there
are now 2 described
species/genera in Placozoa, doubling
the size of that curious phylum:
They still all look the same,
apparently, but that's another issue.
