To identify the family name according to Bentham and Hooker system of Classification:
What were the formal name of ‘Sapindaceae’ and ‘Molluginaceae’ family according to Bentham and Hooker System of Classification. Kindly tell me.


Botanist from worldwide came together under the title of Angiosperm Phlogeny or APG and provided widely accepted system for angiosperm classification based on genetic (DNA) information. We have written book on Systematic pomology. The treatment is based on the latest version of nomenclature and phylogenetic system  (APG III).

To come to the basic question, the Family Molluginaceae understood now according to APGIII, and even before from the Time of Engler and Prantl was included in Bentham Hooker’s Classification under Family (Order) Ficoideae tribe Mollugineae (Order (Cohor) Ficoidales of subclass Calyciflora). The Family Sapindaceae was recognised then also under order Sapindales of subclass Disciflorae.
