This family is misplaced! It is NOT in Lamiales... It is unplaced in euasterid I in APG2, sistergroup to Solanales or Gentianales in most genetic studies, and in the consensus tree of Haston et al. (Taxon (2007) 56: 7-12) it is sister to Hoplestigmataceae and these in turn to Solanales! Done Andyboorman (talk) 09:27, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
This family is currently circumscribed on WS as sensu lato (in the widest sense), as proposed by Nazaire & Hufford, (2012). In order to maintain consistency Codon is placed in the tribe Codoneae Nazaire & L. Hufford Syst. Bot. 37: 779. (2012), as a sub-taxon in Boraginoideae.
However, there is an alternative circumscription of this family, Boraginaceae sensu strictu (in the narrow sense), proposed by APG III, (2014) and Weigend et al., (2014). This will require the allocation of the genera to the six families found in Weigland et al, 2014. Clearly the need for sub-families of Boraginaceae would disappear and tribes will become redundant.
A consensus has now been reached in APG IV apropos Boraginaceae s.l. and the taxon pages have been modified accordingly. However, note Luebert et al. (Boraginales Working Group) 2016. Familial classification of the Boraginales. Taxon 65(3): 502–5 22. This provides an acceptable alternative taxonomy that could be used and this would include the following families under Boraginales - Boraginaceae s.s., Codonaceae, Cordiaceae, Ehretiaceae, Heliotropiaceae, Hydrophyllaceae, Namaceae (name not formally subscribed), Wellstediaceae.
