The African elephant and the aardvark both belong to superorder Afrotheria.
Aardvarks belong to a superorder of mammals known as the Afrotheria, a group thought to have evolved on Africa when that continent was isolated from the others through plate tectonics.
While genetic research has supported the relatedness of animals in this superorder, scientists are still at odds over whether the placental mammal ancestor resides in the Afrotheria or another group.

Other early birds now extinct include the Confuciusornithidae, Enantiornithes, Ichthyornis, and Hesperornithiformes, a group of flightless divers resembling grebes.
The flightless Palaeognaths, the Ostrich group, were first to diverge from the avian lineage, and it is now thought that the basal divergence from the remaining Neognathes was that of the Galloanseri, the superorder containing the Anseriformes (ducks, geese and swans), and the Galliformes (the pheasants, grouse and their allies).
Sibley and Ahlquist's Phylogeny and Classification of Birds (1990) is a landmark work on the classification of birds (although frequently debated and constantly revised).
