A cladistic analysis of Neoglyphea inopinata Forest & de Saint Laurent, 1975, clearly reveals that it possesses both of the diagnostic apomorphies for the fractosternalian Reptantia, the fractured or articulated sternum between the seventh and eighth thoracic somites, and the tripartite secula. Furthermore, there is a distinctive epistome form that is otherwise seen only in the freshwater Astacida. These features have implications for the eventual modification of the higher taxonomy and our ideas concerning the evolution of Reptantia.

Une analyse cladistique de Neoglyphea inopinata Forest & de Saint Laurent, 1975, révèle clairement que cette dernière possède les deux apomorphies diagnostiques pour les Reptantia Fractosternalia, le sternum articulé entre le septième et le huitième segments thoraciques, et la secula tripartite. De plus, il y a une forme particulière de l'épistome qui n'est présente, par ailleurs que chez les Astacida d'eaux douces. Ces caractéristiques ont des implications pour une éventuelle modification de la taxonomie de rang supérieur et pour nos idées concernant l'évolution des Reptantia.
