  1. subclass pantotheria

    Pantotheria is a subclass in the animal kingdom, specifically under the class Mammalia, which includes extinct groups of early mammals and mammal-like animals. The term is not commonly used in contemporary taxonomy, but previously it was used to categorize the earliest mammals and their immediate ancestors. Its members are typically characterized by having a double set of teeth and a complex molar pattern, among other unique traits. Specific classifications under this subclass may vary depending on the researcher or source reference. Hence, it's considered a somewhat obsolete subclass, many of its members are now more generally classified under the subclasses Theria and Prototheria.
