In the latest few trees Afrotheria is basal.
|--Scandentia = Tupaiidae****
* Sometimes given a name that begins with Exafro- or Exafrico- (both in
Waddell et al.). As if anyone would need it.
** Edentata is the diphyletic group Xenarthra + Pholidota.
*** That's what Waddell et al. call them. Murphy et al. say Euarchontoglires.
**** Sometimes they hop around a bit, e. g. come out as basalmost Glires or
basalmost Supraprimates. In Waddell et al. their placement, as shown, is
pretty firm, or so they say (Waddell et al., not the tree shrews).
