The PEDIGREE of
Branch Bilateria

 
     (older schemes placed Pseudocoelomata (Rotifera etc.) as a separate clade under Bilateria; some phyla may clade together as Acoelomata Grade; Orthonectida & Rhombozoa are called Mesozoa collectively, and with Placozoa, called Agnotozoa, but these clades are probably not monophyletic; in fact Rhombozoa may clade with Nematoda)

 "Child(ren)":       Infrakingdom (Grade) of Coelomates   ;   Phylum Rhombozoa (Lozenge animas)   ;   Phylum Orthonectida   ;   Phylum Xenacoelomorpha (gutless Acoels)   ;   prob. Clade Nephrozoa   ;  poss.   Subgrade of Protostomia
 poss. "Partner(s)":       Infrakingdom (Grade) of Coelomates
