Of these, Solenodontidae includes only two Dispersal extant species, which are endemic to the largest islands of the Greater Antilles: Cuba and Hispaniola. Most Eulipotyphla molecular studies suggest that eulipotyphlan families diverged from each other across several million years, with Nesophontes the basal split between Solenodontidae and other families occurring in the Late Cretaceous. By contrast, Sato Solenodon et al. (2016) suggest that eulipotyphlan families diverged from each other in a polytomy∼58.6 million years ago Vicariance (Mya).
