Other clades and paraphyletic or diphyletic groups (see Taylor, 2000) of the class Stenolaemata perished in the mass extinctions that began and ended the Triassic.
The earlier of these events marked the origin of the class Stenolaemata, of which the Cyclostomata are the only extant order; the later event marked the origin of the order Cheilostomata (of the class Gymnolaemata).
