dc.description.abstract "Derived characters of the sphenopalatine, interorbital, and dorsal palatine foramina are shared by the Eutypomyidae and Castoridae. These support the hypothesis that the two families had common ancestry in a stem species from which no other rodent groups are descended. The two families may be included in a monophyletic superfamily, Catoroidea"--P. [1]. en_US
