Dental evidence indicates that the Lagomorpha probably originated from a stock in common with the Mongolian insectivore Pseudictops, which is tentatively placed in the Anagalidae. Zalambdalestes and an unnamed genus from the middle Paleocene of North America may also be related to this group, which appears to have originated near a late Cretaceous leptictid insectivore.
