is known from two genera from the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of North America.

within the order Multituberculata.
(from ancient Greek "ἄλλος" "ὀδούς", "different tooth") is a family of extinct multituberculate mammal that lived in what is now North America during the Upper Jurassic period. They were relatively early mammals and are within the informal suborder of "Plagiaulacida". The family was named by Othniel Charles Marsh in 1889. Two genera are recognized: "Ctenacodon" and "Psalodon".
Ctenacodon is a genus of extinct mammal that lived in what is now North America during the Upper Jurassic period. It's a member of the family
within the order Multituberculata. "Ctenacodon",also known as "Allodon" (Marsh 1881), was named by Othniel Charles Marsh in 1879. At least three species are currently recognized.
It is based on a portion of snout. ""Glirodon" retains the plesiomorphic 'plagiaulacidan' ("Plagiaulacida") dental formula and shares with
the structure of the upper premolars (Pl.1 fis 2-4). It differs from the Paulchoffatiidae and Plagiaulacidae in having a single-cusped I3," (Kielan-Jaworowska & Hurum, 2001, p. 401-402). I3 refers to an upper incisor and 'plesiomorphic' means 'basal'.
Bakker assigned his specimens to "Ctenacodon" with hesitation, noting additional specimens may require a new classification. In a 2001 review of multituberculates, Zofia Kielan-Jaworowska and Jørn Hurum did not recognize Bakker's specimen as related to other "Ctenacodon" species or even belonging to the family
, speculating the species might instead belong to the family Plagiaulacidae. In 2004, the species was placed in the newly established genus "Morrisonodon".
