Abstract: The Lardizabalaceae was cladistically analyzed based 43 morphological characters.The parsimonious analysis was conducted and 68 equally most parsimonious trees were generated.50% majority rule consensus tree of those trees was basically consistent with the tribal classifications of Takhtajan and Qin.The designated outgroup Sargentodoxa was resolved as sister to Boquila,which was similar to the results of Loconte et al.,but was different from the molecular-data-based results.

Key words: Lardizabalaceae
