  Indotyphlidae

22 species in 7 genera

Indotyphlids are distinguished by the following combination of characters: imperfect stapes, presence of inner mandibular teeth, having some bicusped teeth, eye located at the border of the squamosal and maxillopalatines, and either viviparity plus lack of scales and lack of secondary annuli, or oviparity. These caecilians are found in India, Africa, and the Seychelles (Wilkinson et al. 2011).
