Voichyshyn (2011) reviewed Early Devonian 'armoured agnathans' of Podolia, Ukraine, and also treated the group, without cladistic analysis, as order Cyathaspidiformes with the following families: Cyathaspididae, Irregulareaspididae, Poraspididae and Ctenaspididae.

Initial examination of these fossils based on evident morphological characters a priori (due to missing or conflicting characters), precluded definite affinities with Solanales for one subset (Cantisolanum and certain Solanites species--as discussed below in section "Discussion"), suggested the possibility of Solanaceous affinities pending further analysis for another (those associated with Solanites brongniartii--Sections Cladistic Analysis and Methods for S.
The prevailing importance of genitalia not just in alpha taxonomy, but as reliable phylogenetic tracers against external morphological characters underlies a great amount of papers throughout at least fifty years; it was explicitly stressed by Zunino (1983, 1987), Zunino & Palestrini (1988), and was formally demonstrated by Tarasov & Solodovnikov (2011) by means of a cladistic analysis of a large sample of Onthophagini.
