This genus comprises two species distributed in Brazil, Bolivia, and Venezuela and it was segregated from Ruprechtia based on molecular and morphological characters (Sanchez & Kron 2011). Magoniella is characterized by a strict lianaceous habit and it shares with Triplaris and Salta the presence of a scar at the base of the perianth in the fruit.A,B
