Abstract:The phylogenetic relationships among 38 species of the family Bopyridae were studied based on 47 morphological characters of the samples collected from Chinese seas, using cladistic analysis by PAUP program. The results showed that among the 38 species, Gigantione ishigakiensis (Shiino, 1941) of Psedioninae derived earlier than other species, Athelges takanoshimensis (Ishii, 1914) and Pseudostegias setoensis (Shiino, 1933) of the subfamily of Athelginae derived later than other species. Finally, the following were the sister groups that identified in this study: Asymmetrione globifera (An et al., 2009) and Parasymmetrione tuberculineata (An et al., 2010); Gyge ovalis (Shiino, 1939) and G. fujianensis (An et al., 2009); Dactylokepon holthuisi (Bourdon, 1967) and Upogebione bidigitatus (An et al., 2009) ; Onkokepon articulatus (An et al., 2006) and Onkokepon beibuensis (An et al., 2006); Allokepon monody (Bourdou,1967) and A. longicauda (Duan et al., 2008).
