Abstract

Medusagyne oppositifolia Baker is the sole member of Medusagynaceae Engl. and Gilg and its phylogenetic position has been unclear. Analysis of rbcL sequence data indicates a close and strongly supported relationship to Ochnaceae and Quiinaceae, but does not resolve the relationships between these taxa. Together the three families form a monophyletic group with a somewhat more distant relationship to other linalean including Malpighiaceae, Linaceae and phyllanthoid P. thorbiaceae.
