Shuotherium dongi (Chow & Rich, 1982 ) > Shuotherium kermacki (Sigogneau-Russel,1998) > Shuothrium shilongi (Wang, Clemens, Hu & Li, 1998) > Shuotherium sp. (Sigogneau-Russel,1998) > ?Shuotherium ((Sigogneau-Russel,1998))
The order Shuotheridia and family Shuotheriidae are monotypic and include the single genus Shuotherium. The holotype is represented by most of a dentary with seven teeth (two of which are broken). Additional species are represented by isolated lower and upper molars. Sigogneau-Russel, 1998 described several isolated lower and upper molars of Shuotherium from the Bathonian of England, assigning one of the lower teeth to Shuotherium dingi and others to Shuotherium kermacki or to Shuotherium sp. She also described and figured two upper molars, tentatively assigned to ?Shuotherium.
