Conservative synonym: Cruciferae
Subfamalies: nil.

Family Description: Annual to perennial herbs, rarely small shrubs. Leaves alternate, exstipulate. Flowers usually hermaphrodite, actinomorphic, hypogynous. Sepals 4, free, in 2 decussate pairs. Petals 4, rarely absent, free, clawed, imbricate or contorted, alternating with the sepals. Stamens usually 6, rarely 4, 2 or 0, tetradynamous (an outer pair with short filaments, and 2 inner pairs, 1 posterior and 1 anterior, with long filaments); filaments sometimes winged or with a tooth-like appendage. Nectarial glands of various sizes, shapes, colours and dispositions around the base of the stamens and ovary. Ovary of 2 carpels, syncarpous, with 2 parietal placentas, usually bilocular through the formation of a membranous false septum by the union of outgrowths of the placentas, sometimes transversely plurilocular. Stigma capitate to bilobed. Fruit usually a dehiscent capsule opening by 2 valves from below, called a siliqua when at least 3 times as long as wide or a silicula if less than 3 times as long as wide; sometimes indehiscent, breaking into 1-seeded portions or not; rarely transversely articulate with dehiscent and indehiscent segments; sometimes dividing at maturity into 1-seeded portions (lomentum).
