Miacidae

miacidmiacids
Miacids are extinct primitive carnivoramorphans within the family Miacidae that lived during the Paleocene and Eocene epochs, about 62–34 million years ago.

Carnivora

Carnivoramorpha are a clade of mammals that includes the modern order Carnivora.
Their molecular phylogeny shows the extant Carnivora are a monophyletic group, the crown group of the Carnivoramorpha.

Creodonta

They may both represent separate orders of fossil mammals related to carnivoramorphs or are descended from more basal taxa.

Miacoidea

miacoidmiacoidsviverravines
Today, Miacidae is recognized as a paraphyletic array of stem taxa that probably resulted in some "miacid" genera ending up just outside the order Carnivora, the crown-group within the Carnivoramorpha.

Miacis

Miacis hargeriMiacis igniculusMiacis sylvestris
Miacis is a genus of extinct carnivorous mammals that appeared in the late Paleocene and continued through the Eocene.

Chailicyon

Chailicyon is an extinct genus in the basal Carnivoramorph family Miacidae that lived in Asia during the Middle to Late Eocene.

Quercygale

Quercygale smithi
Phylogenetic analysis of the basicranial morphology of miacid carnivoramorphans suggests Quercygale is the most advanced miacid and sister to crown group Carnivora, predating the split between Feliformia and Caniformia., although another recent study places them as a stem group within Feliformia.

Mustelodon

Mustelodon is an extinct carnivore, which belongs to the family Viverravidae, a group of stem Carnivoramorpha.

Feliformia
