The combination of characters present in this taxon: small pentamerous flowers with cupulate hypanthium ending in a thick presumably nectariferous rim, triangular sepals with a prominent midvein or keel, thin clawed cucullate petals alternating with the sepals, and stamens opposite to the petals is not found in the Solanaceae or even in the Asteridae, but in the Rhamnaceae, a family that is today classified with the Order Rosales in the Rosid clade (APG, 1998, 2003).
