Usage notes[edit]

Many genera have previously been placed in family Capparaceae: Cleome, Cleomella, Dactylaena, Haptocarpum, Oxystylis, Podandrogyne, Polanisia and Wislizenia. (See Wikipedia-logo.png Capparaceae#Excluded genera on Wikipedia.Wikipedia:Capparaceae#Excluded genera) Additionally, a recent genetic study failed to distinguish Podandrogyne and Polanisia from Cleome.
