Sapindaceae A.L. de Jussieu. Soapberry Family.

Key to Sapindaceae

A family of about 133-141 genera and 1465-1900 species, trees, shrubs, vines, and herbs, primarily of tropical (rarely temperate) regions of the Old World and New World. APG III (2009), Acevedo-Rodríguez et al. (2011), APG IV (2016), Buerki et al. (2021), and others have recently included Hippocastanaceae and Aceraceae in the Sapindaceae; though Buerki et al. (2009, 2010) made a well-reasoned case for recognition of the segregate families Xanthocerataceae, Aceraceae, Hippocastanaceae, Sapindaceae, and as more diagnosable families with long traditional usage (except Xanthocerataceae).
