  • Abstract— Diverse morphological evidence from both living and fossil taxa suggests several higher‐level groupings of the Recent orders of eutherian mammals. The strongest hypotheses closely relate rodents and lagomorphs within Glires, proboscideans and sirenians within Tethytheria, hyracoids and tethytheres within Paenungulata, chiropterans and dermopterans, and pholidotans and edentates. Somewhat weaker evidence supports groupings of Glires with macroscelideans, primates and tree‐shrews with… CONTINUE READING
