    @Chealyn98 "phylogeny" isn't a taxonomic system. It refers to the evolutionary history of a given organism. Phylogenetic systematics, only considers phylogeny. If you are grouping based on traits, similar in nature, or based on traits, evolved from the same ancestor,( or both) Then, both (as seems most likely), your answer would be B, because the Linnaean system considers both the phylogeny of the organisms in question and their degree of similarity. @ruthgarcia28
