Myliobatiformes is one of the four orders of batoids, cartilaginous fishes related to sharks. They were formerly included in the order Rajiformes, but more recent phylogenetic studies have shown that the myliobatiforms are a monophyletic group, and that its more derived members evolved their highly flattened shapes independently of the skates.
Nelson's 2006 Fishes of the World arranges the Myliobatiformes as follows:
- Suborder Platyrhinoidei
- Suborder Zanobatoidei
- Suborder Myliobatoidei
- Superfamily Hexatrygonoidea
- Superfamily Urolophoidea
- Superfamily Urotrygonoidea
- Superfamily Dasyatoidea
