Archeplatydontia (lit. "old broad teeth") is the first clade of Platydontia, forming the first clade of arboreal animals.
Archeplatydonts are arboreal animals analogous to rodents or prosimians on Earth. Their clawed feet and longer legs improve their maneuverability within the trees they dwell in.
Archeplatydonts are omnivorous, with their diet consisting of Malacaformes and plant matter. Their chisel-like teeth allow them to digest a broad diet, as well as burrow through trees to search for Malacoformes. Archeplatydonts themselves are prey to Elastospondyli, and some species have developed camouflage as a means of protection.
