Examples of "palaeoryctidae"
was originally assigned to the now-abandoned grouping Insectivora by Sloan and Van Valen (1965) and more recently to Eutheria by Scott et al. (2002). Sister groups include: Kennalestidae, Nanocuridae, Pantolestidae, and Zalambdalestidae.
"Oxlestes" was initially referred to
, an eutherian family, based on comparions with several other Cretaceous eutherians like "Zalambdalestes", "Barunlestes" and "Asioryctes" (none of which considered to be palaeoryctids anymore;
as a whole may be invalid). Posterior efforts have cautiously referred it to the metatherian clade Deltatheroida, mostly based on size and its carnivorous speciations, but recent studies have shown no evidence of specifically deltatheroidean or even metatherian characters. Averinov and Archibald et al. 2005 referred it to the eutherian clade Zhelestidae, suggesting a close relation to "Sheikhdzheilia" though this too is not entirely certain.
Deccanolestes is a scansorial, basal Euarchontan from the Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) and Paleocene Intertrappean Beds of Andhra Pradesh, India. It may be closely related to "Sahnitherium". "Deccanolestes" has been referred to
in the past, but recent evidence has shown the it is either the most basal Euarchontan, as the earliest known Adapisoriculid, or as a stem-afrotherian.
("old/stony digger", from Greek: ὀρύκτης, "oryctes") is an extinct group of relatively non-specialized non-placental eutherian mammals that strived in North America during the late Cretaceous and took part in the first placental evolutionary radiation together with other early mammals such as the leptictids.
