Chlamyphorinae is a subfamily of South American armadillos in the family Chlamyphoridae. Members of this subfamily, the fairy armadillos, are largely fossorial and have reduced eyes and robust forearms with large claws for digging.[1] The subfamily is the sister group of Tolypeutinae (giant, three-banded and naked-tailed armadillos).[1][2][3] Chlamyphorinae contains the following genera:[3]

  • Calyptophractus, greater fairy armadillo
  • Chlamyphorus, pink fairy armadillo
