Classification “A preliminary, morphology-based phylogenetic analysis [...] points to a position of, first capricornia, and then Lizardia hirschi, as sister taxa to the remaining hesionids. [...] Assessing the relationships of these two taxa from morphology only may be problematic due to the presence of many general hesionid characters (apart from the autapomorphies with the reproductive system). Morphologically, capricornia and L. hirschi are similar to each other, and both have a number of features that are characteristic for juvenile hesionids, including a dorsally inserted median antenna, few cephalized segments, and 10 proboscis papillae.” [details]
