Wilson & Reeder, eds. (2005): Comments: The Cuniculidae (Agoutidae) has been included in Dasyproctidae by several authors, but see comments under Cuniculidae. McKenna and Bell (1997) included the dasyproctids as a subfamily (Dasyproctinae) within the Agoutidae. Molecular data (Rowe and Honeycutt, 2002) strongly support designation of two separate families: the Dasyproctidae and the Cunniculidae (Agoutidae). Placed in the superfamily Cavioidea by Woods (1982) and McKenna and Bell (1997)
David Nicolson - ITIS Data Development Coordinator: Authorship for family Dasyproctidae or subfamily Dasyproctinae sometimes given as Bonaparte 1838 (e.g., Wilson & Reeder, eds., 1992 & 2005), and sometimes as Gray 1825 (e.g., McKenna & Bell, 1997). Until the case is clarified, ITIS is noting the difference and following Wilson & Reeder, eds., 2005
