Our poster presents a phylogenetic hypothesis for Melastomataceae and their closest relatives, Memecylaceae, Crypteroniaceae, Alzateaceae, Rhynchocalycaceae, Oliniaceae, and Penaeaceae, based on combined rbcL, ndhF, and rpl16 sequences and parsimony, minimum evolution, and maximum likelihood reconstructions.
Fifty-six exemplars, representing the 13 traditional tribes and three subfamilies, Astronioideae, Melastomatoideae, and Memecyloideae (= Memecylaceae DC.), were sequenced, with additional denser taxon sampling for ndhF.
Memecylaceae are sister to Melastomataceae, and Pternandra, a SE Asian genus of 15 species, is the first-branching Melastomataceae.

(1998) accept Memecylaceae, and there is growing evidence to support recognition of the family.
The ovary is usually 2-5-carpelled and 1-5-locular in the Memecylaceae while, in the Melastomataceae, the ovary is typically has 3-5 carpels and locules and only rarely is the ovary 1-locular.
The anthers in Memecylaceae tend to open by longitudinal slits but these are sometimes shortened and nearly poricidal.

Melastomataceae + Memecylaceae [= Melastomataceae s.l.]: included phloem +; (styloids +); 2ndary veins 2 or 4, strong, from (near) the base; C contorted, anthers with branched trace, pollen with pseudocolpi; radicle bent.
The inclusion of Memecylaceae in Melastomataceae is an option in APG II.
Memecylaceae have opposite, entire leaves and swollen nodes; the venation is variable, but indumentum is absent or consists of uniseriate hairs.
