|Eutheria (from Ancient Greek "true beasts") is one of two mammalian clades with extant members that diverged in the Late Jurassic. Except for the opossum, which is a metatherian, all mammals indigenous to North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia are eutherians. They are also placentals; the Placentalia consist of the extant eutherians, their last common ancestor, and all extinct descendants of that ancestor.
