Many genera have previously been placed in family Capparaceae: Cleome, Cleomella, Dactylaena, Haptocarpum, Oxystylis, Podandrogyne, Polanisia and Wislizenia. (See Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Capparaceae#Excluded genera on Wikipedia.Wikipedia ) Additionally, a recent genetic study failed to distinguish Podandrogyne and Polanisia from Cleome.
