The family MEGAPODAGRIONIDAE ( 3 genera)
Tillyard 1917
Type species:
Formerly a problematic family, a paraphyletic grab-bag 'linked' by symplesiomorphic characters, clarified in Dijkstra et al 2013b. Kalkman et al discuss the distribution of larval gill characters within the 'family' and consider possible monophyletic subgroups.
