Multiple family‐level subdivisions of Boraginales have been proposed in the past. The relationships of several constituent genera have been enigmatic, including Codon (Codonaceae), Hoplestigma (Hoplestigmataceae), Pholisma (Lennoaceae), Vahlia (Vahliaceae), and Wellstedia (Wellstediaceae), all of which are included in the present study. We present a molecular analysis with four chloroplast loci, including 89 ingroup taxa and a broad outgroup sampling in the asterids. The genus Vahlia is… 
Generative ontogeny in Tiquilia (Ehretiaceae: Boraginales) and phylogenetic implications
TLDR
No character found in Tiquilia can be regarded as synapomorphic with any other taxon of the Ehretiaceae and the internal architecture of the superior bicarpellate ovary resulted from the development of several secondary septa including apical, basal and false septa.
Waking sleeping beauties: a molecular phylogeny and nomenclator of Halgania (Ehretiaceae, Boraginales)
TLDR
A nomenclatural list of all validly published names of Halgania (at the species level and below) is compiled, providing information about herbarium deposition of original material and discuss the current use of the names.
Taxonomic revision of the genus Heliotropium (Boraginaceae s.l.) in south Yemen
TLDR
The genus Heliotropium L. (Boraginaceae) is taxonomically revised in southern Yemen and ten species are recognized, with Connate anthers and deep or shallow ventral circular depressions on the nutlets found to be useful in distinguishing members of H. sect.
Fossil nutlets of Boraginaceae from the continental Eocene of Hamada of Méridja (southwestern Algeria): The first fossil of the Borage family in Africa.
TLDR
The Ogastemma-like fossils indicate that the Echiochileae, which are most diverse in northern Africa and southwestern Asia, have a long history in this region, dating back to the Eocene.
Pollen Morphology of Boraginaceae s.l. from Brazilian Forest Fragments: Aperture Types and Ornamentation on Cordiaceae and Heliotropiaceae
TLDR
The taxonomic importance of pollen morphology and of Boraginaceae s.l. as eurypalynous is reinforced, and smaller diameter values and similarities in aperture and exine ornamentation characterize the Heliotropiaceae species.
Phylogeny of the popcorn flowers: Use of genome skimming to evaluate monophyly and interrelationships in subtribe Amsinckiinae (Boraginaceae)
TLDR
Although genome skimming verifies the monophyly of many genera and clades of Amsinckiinae, relationships among those clades and along the backbone of the trees remain uncertain, their elucidation possibly a factor of short branch lengths and likely requiring different types of molecular data.
Comparative genome/transcriptome analysis probes Boraginales' phylogenetic position, WGDs in Boraginales, and key enzyme genes in the alkannin/shikonin core pathway
TLDR
The results showed that Boraginales was most probably closer to the Solanales/Gentianales clade than the Lamiales clade, at least based on the single‐copy orthologous genes from genome/transcriptome data.
Gynoecium and Fruit Development in Heliotropium Sect. Heliothamnus (Heliotropiaceae)
TLDR
The development of the gynoecium and fruit of H. Heliothamnus are described using SEM, light microscopy, and high-resolution X-ray computed tomography and are not structurally correspondent to the eremocarps of the Boraginaceae s.
Evolution of Angiosperm Pollen: 8. Lamiids1
TLDR
The evolutionary patterns of pollen morphology found in this study reconfirm several previously postulated evolutionary trends, which include a increase in aperture number, a transition from equatorially arranged apertures to globally distributed ones, and an increase in exine ornamentation complexity.

Codonaceae-a newly required family name in Boraginales
TLDR
The recognition of the morphologically well-differentiated clades of Boraginales at family rather than subfamily level is proposed and the recognition of Codonaceae as a novel segregate family from Boraginaceae is proposed.
Transfer cells in the seeds of Boraginales
TLDR
This study demonstrates that in Heliotropi Families, Cordiaceae, Ehretiaceae and Lennoaceae, TCs are found in an uninterrupted course from the placenta via the funicle to the seed coat, thus promoting rapid germination when sufficient water is available.
A revision of the Lennoaceae
TLDR
The contributions of Kuijt to the understanding of the Lennoaceae are the first research to clearly relate structure and function in describing the parasitic habit of Pholisma, and serve as the most comprehensive review of the knowledge of the family as part of a general work on the biology of parasitic angiosperms.
Phylogenetic Studies in the Euasterids II: With Particular Reference to Asterales and Escalloniaceae
TLDR
Using the recently developed Bayesian approach to phylogenetic reconstruction, in combination with a dataset consisting of the atpB, ndhF and rbcL nucleotide sequences, a resolved and fairly well supported phylogeny of the Euasterids II could be reconstructed.
POLLEN MORPHOLOGY AND THE RELATIONSHIPS OF HOPLESTIGMATACEAE
TLDR
Until Hoplestigmataceae is examined for the presence of internal phloem, one of the more definitive characters for Myrtales, it is deferred to Takhtajan's placement in the Boraginales.
Secondary Structure of the ITS1 Transcript and its Application in a Reconstruction of the Phylogeny of Boraginales
TLDR
A general secondary structure of ITS1 for Boraginales, with four major helices, is proposed here and it is demonstrated that in each subtaxon, derivations from this structure are found.
Phylogeny and systematics of Lithodora (Boraginaceae-Lithospermeae) and its affinities to the monotypic genera Mairetis, Halacsya and Paramoltkia based on ITS1 and trnLUAA-sequence data and morphology
TLDR
A critical reevaluation of carpological characters traditionally used to delimit Lithodora corroborates the results of the molecular analysis and indicates that the cupulate areole and the mericarpid appendage found in the genus are homoplasious.
Molecular systematics of Boraginaceae tribe Boragineae based on ITS1 and trnL sequences, with special reference to Anchusa s.l.
TLDR
Molecular data show that nine of the usually accepted genera of the Boragineae consisting of two or more species are monophyletic: Anchusella, Borago, Brunnera, Cynoglottis, Gastrocotyle, Hormuzakia, Nonea, Pulmonaria and Symphytum, and the tribe includes the four monotypic genera Paraskevia, Pentaglott is, Phyllocara and Trachystemon.
