The name Malvidae or Malvids is used in different ways. Originally in Apg2 it was for the Orders Brassicales, Malvales and Sapindales. They were then called Eurosids 2. In Apg3 the small Orders of Crossomateles, Huerteales and Picramniales were added. The name Malvidae is used for this group in the restricted sense now. Geraniales and Myrtales are associated with Malvidae. They are seen as a sister group, allied with Malvidae but not belonging to the core Malvidae. Sometimes they are also called Malvidae, extended Malvidae.
In the Plant theory the name Malvanae is used for the Class and Malvidae for the Subclass. The Order Santalales is added to the Malvidae. Saxifragales is added to the Class Malvanae. The Family Halogaraceae is split off from the Saxifragles and placed in its own Order Halogarales.
