  Comment: Comments: The results of Wahlert et al. (1993) and Storch (1995b) indicated that Myoxus, Muscardinus, and Glirulus form a monophyletic group. Yachontov and Potapova (1991) hypothesized that Glis and Muscardinus are closely related to Selevinia. Daams and de Bruijn (1995) included only Glis and Muscardinus in Glirinae, and arranged Glirulus under their Dryomyinae. Koenigswald (1993, 1995) placed Glis and Glirulus together in his most primitive cluster, 'Group I', and Muscardinus in his most derived cl...
