Superorder Afrotheria showing the presumed relationships among the various orders. Some of the relationships are not well confirmed. There is support for the group Paenungulata, containing Hyracoidea (hyraxes, elephants, and manatees/sea cows), Tethytheria (elephants and manatees/sea cows), Afrosoricida (families Tenrecidae (tenrecs) and Chrysochloridae (golden moles)).
