Found inWalker mamm. world: v. 1, p. 515 (Order Xenarthra. Xenarthrans. "The name Xenarthra usually has been applied at the subordinal level, with the name Edentata being given to an order that included the Xenarthra and the supposedly ancestral suborder Palaeanodonta. However, Glass (1985) explained that the Palaeanodonta are ancestral to the Pholidota, not to the Xenarthra, and that the name Edentata should be considered a synonym of the name Pholidota. The name Xenarthra also has been used at the ordinal level by Barlow (1984), Engelmann (1985), and Wetzel (1985), though not by Corbet and Hill (1986).")
