Such studies have led to some genera previously considered members of the Boidae to be moved out of the family altogether.
Two previously recognized Boidae subfamilies, the Tropidophiinae (the dwarf boas, or wood snakes, of the Caribbean islands) and the Bolyeriinae (the extremely rare, oviparous Round Island boas), were moved out of the family Boidae and elevated to full family status as the Tropidophidae and Bolyeridae, respectively.
Even staying within the family Boidae, there are herpers who still insist on referring to their green tree pythons as Chondropython, or Chondros for short, even though they are now classified Moreila viridis.

 Phylogeny   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Advanced thermoreception is found in many members of the primitive families Boidae and Pythonidae and in Crotalinae, a sub-family of the advanced family Viperidae.
The phylogenetics of the families Pythonidae and Boidae are not well understood, but it seems that thermoreception with free nerve endings near the surface of the skin evolved in Boidae and that speciallized pits were later derived in Pythonidae.
In most members of Boidae, no pits are present and the thermosensory cells lie very near the surface of the skin under the labial scales.
