Gisekia was excluded from Aizoaceae and raised to family level by Nakai (1942). Recent molecular studies support the family status and show an isolated position of Gisekiaceae within core-Caryophyllales (Brockington & al. 2009; Schäferhoff & al. 2010; Crawley & Hilu 2012; Bissinger & al. 2014).A,B,C,D,E,F
