The order Clupeiformes contains two major suborders: the Denticeiitoidei from fresh waters of Africa, and the Clupeiodei, which includes four families, all known from Australia. Most species area treated in Whitehead (1985) and Whitehead et al. (1988). Lecointree & Nelson (1996) discussed relationships and suggested a close relationship with Ostariophysi (minnows and catfishes).
