Caeciliids are distinguished by the following combination of characters: imperforate stapes, inner mandibular teeth, eyes surrounded or covered by the maxillopalatine, and monocusped teeth. These caecilians are found in South and Central America. The family Caeciliidae has recently undergone substantial taxonomic revision (Wilkinson et al. 2011).
