On the evolution of the psammosteids (Heterostraci).
The taxon was initially recognized as a suborder by Kiaer (1932), who named it the Cyathaspida and included it with the suborders Psammosteida and Pteraspida within the order Heterostraci. He included within this taxon heterostracans in which (1) the orbits are not surrounded by the dorsal shield but form semicircular notches in it, (2) the large oblong branchial plate situated between the dorsal and ventral plates is detached and (3) the dentine ridges forming the surface of the dermal skeleton are smooth and not crenulated as in the pteraspids.
4.8) showed in cladistic form (although without a cladistic analysis) as part of a phylogeny of the Heterostraci a simple cyathaspid phylogeny in which Nahanniaspis represented basal forms and Anglaspis and Torpedaspis more advanced forms, while the ctenaspids and amphiaspids formed a sister-group.
Within the Heterostraci only the Pteraspididae have been subjected to a cladistic analysis (Pernegre & Elliott 2008) until an analysis of the Cyathaspididae was published by Lundgren & Blom (2013).

At first psammosteids sensu stricto (from Drepanaspis to Psammosteus) in the group Heterostraci were proposed to form the families Drepanaspidae and Psammosteidae (Traquair 1900; Brotzen 1936; Berg 1940; Obruchev 1941) or only the family Drepanaspidae (Stensio 1927), or only the family Psammosteidae (Woodward 1910; Gross 1937; Berg 1955).
