Families

The order Soricomorpha is a biological clade within the class of mammals. In previous years it formed a significant group within the Insectivora order. However, that order was shown to be paraphyletic and various new orders were split off from it, including Afrosoricida (tenrecs and golden moles), Macroscelidea (elephant shrews), and Erinaceomorpha (hedgehogs and gymnures), leaving just four families as shown here.[1] Southern Short-tailed Shrew (Blarina carolinensis) from the USGS.
