Berberidopsidales is an order of Southern Hemisphere woody flowering plants.[2] The name is newly accepted in the APG III system of plant taxonomy.[2] APG II system, of 2003, mentions the possibility of recognizing the order, as comprising the families Berberidopsidaceae and Aextoxicaceae. However, APG II left the families unplaced as to order, assigning them to the clade core eudicots.[3] The APG III system of 2009 formally recognized the order.[4]
