Mammalia - Cetacea - Protocetidae
If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.
|P. D. Gingerich et al. 1993||Indocetine protocetids differ from remingtonocetids, dorudontids, and basilosaurids in having Protocetus-like skulls, while retaining long necks, multiple-vertebral sacra, and substantial hind limbs not seen in protocetines. Indocetines were more aquatic than Pakicetus and other pakicetines (Gingerich and Russell, 1990), but at the same time amphibious tail-swimmers less advanced than Protocetus.|
