Values at nodes represent bootstrap values > 50%. Fossil taxa are indicated by daggers (†), with Malleodectes highlighted in bold. The three currently recognised dasyuromorphian families are coloured: Dasyuridae in blue, Myrmecobiidae (of which Myrmecobius fasciatus is the sole known representative) in orange and Thylacinidae in red.
