Taxonomic remark Class Reptilia - paraphyletic since technically it should also contain Aves, which evolved from it - has been abandoned in some recent treatments (e.g. Catalogue of Life, 2022 version), where it has been replaced by multiple taxa at class level i.e. "classes" (formerly orders or subclasses) Crocodylia, Sphenodontia, Squamata and Testudines, alongside existing classes Aves and Mammalia, all within Tetrapoda (megaclass) and Amniota (superclass). Amphibia remain as a class, within Tetrapoda but outside Amniota. [details]
