(2005a) have recently clarified some relationships in Malpighiales in a four-gene (all three compartments) analysis, in particular suggesting an association between the families with parietal placentation (and also Goupiaceae) and that Centroplacus should be recognised as a separate family.
Although sampling within Malpighiales (only three taxa with parietal placentation were studied) and other rosids was poor, Barkman et al.
The fruits are dispersed by bats or by water, the empty cavities affording bouyancy.
