ORDER HYRACOIDEA

Author:Huxley, 1869.
Comments:Traditionally (since Huxley, 1869) the category or rank of "Order" has been used for Hyracoidea. In 1997, McKenna and Bell, following cladistic classification, proposed a new category "Suborder" for Hyracoidea, in the "Order" Uranotheria McKenna and Bell (1997). For stability I retain the ordinal category, recognizing the cladistic message implied by the McKenna and Bell arrangement.
