Classification Westheide (2008: 5) states "A detailed molecular. anatomical and phylogenetic analysis is in preparation but preliminary results place the species [Apharyngtus punicus far away from the Dinophilidae". Ten years later Kerbl et al (2018: 5) cite Westheide (2008) for their statement that "monotypic genus Apharyngtus Westheide, 1971 has an uncertain phylogenetic relationship to Dinophilidae. Apharyngtus is apparently a separate chapter authored by Westheide in the forthcoming Handbook of Zoology [ https://www.degruyter.com/view/Zoology/bp_029147-6_80 ]. Westheide in the Handbook of Zoology Dinophilidae chapter states that "The erection of a new family taxon Apharyngtidae thus seems to be necessary." [details]
