Alright Remember This.
Monophyletic:

This shit pretty much means that when look at a branch in taxonomy, to be monophyletic you must include the ancestor of the group and all of its decedents.

This here is the reason I call anything with a fucking backbone a fish and be right.

Paraphyletic

Pretty much like monphyletic only you take some liberties and remove some of the decedents. This is the reason even though I am right that all animals with a back bone are fish, we don't call 'em fish (that and like whale, fish isn't a taxonomic category)

The taxonomic grouping that is pretty much the "we thought this was this because they were similar in this way category":

You know that guy who fucking stupid enough to think elephants,rhinos, and hippos were all related to each other (i.e you when you were young)? Yeah that's polyphyletic. Birds and mammals are polyphyletic because they are warm-blooded.

Flesh and blood of a dead star, slain in the apocalypse of supernova, resurrected by four billion years of continuous autocatalytic reaction and crowned with the emergent property of sentience in the dream that the universe might one day understand itself.

Didn’t we do this once before with eels and morays? Consider
