Geographic, stratigraphic, and ontogenetic differences among Triassic conodonts allow recognition of three groups of conodonts, considered to be phylogenetically distinct: the gladigondolellid group, the neogondolellid group, and the neospathodid-epigondolellid group. Each group consists of platform conodonts with or without nonplatform associates. The gladigondolellid fauna arose from ozarkodinid ancestors in the Lower Triassic, flourished during the Middle Triassic, then disappeared, apparently leaving no record outside the area of the Tethys Seaway. One or both of the other two groups is represented virtually everywhere that marine Triassic rocks occur.
