    Regarding the fossil taxa, only two groups are of special interest to this discussion of the phylogeny of the extant families, with the Upper Cretaceous Plectocretacicoidea as sister to all other tetraodontiforms (Paleocene to Recent), and the Eoplectidae (Eocene of Monte Bolca) as the sister to all of the gymnodonts (i.e., Triodontidae and higher clades); see Tyler and Santini, , for an illustrated .

Some of their cranial characters and the presence of a postcoelomic bone clearly refer these fishes to the order Pycnodontiformes.

Three new families of Upper Cretaceous tetraodontiforms are a monophyletic clade (the new superfamily Plectocretacicoidea) that is the morphologically primitive sister group of all other tetraodontiforms (the triacanthoid, balistoid + ostracioid, and tetraodontoid clades), which are known only as early as the.
