Abstract

A review of relevant literature underpins a revised definition required for the Eupodoidea. Cladistic analysis of 22 taxa and 44 characters indicates that the Penthalodidae are monophyletic and the Penthaleidae are paraphyletic. The phyletic status of the Eupodidae was not resolved. The Rhagidiidae are either paraphyletic or, if Strandtmanniidae is regarded as a synonym of Rhagidiidae, monophyletic.
