Polytherians identify with more than one species of nonhuman animal.  

This is the current terminology. Polytherian replaced the old term Polywere which had first been use in 1996.[1] [2] It is not known exactly when the term polytherian became standard use within the community. It most likely came into use in 2005/2006 when the term Therianthrope was replacing Were.  

Poly is a prefix meaning "many".

Individuals with a great number of non-human identities may be confusing spirit guides as theriotypes.
