FABALES

The Fabales is sometimes treated as one family, the Fabaceae (old name of Leguminosae). Here, we follow Cronquist and treat it as three families.

Mimosaceae - Flowers actinomorphic

Caesalpiniaceae - Zygomorphic flowers, standard (banner) positioned within the wings and petals

Fabaceae - Zygomorphic flowers, standard positioned outside the wing.
