Are both sphingomyelin and glycolipids considered membrane lipids? Also, I know you mentioned something unique about sphingomyelin in lecture, could you reiterate that for me please?

Yes, they're both membrane lipids. What's unique about sphingomyelin is that it's the only commonly encountered membrane phospholipid that isn't based on glycerol as its "backbone."
