Recent molecular phylogenetic analyses of nuclear, chloroplast and mitochondrial DNA of Polemoniaceae have prompted a reexamination of morphological data and a reassessment of current taxonomy. These studies prompt several nomenclatural changes in the family. Eight taxa formerly included in Gilia section Giliastrum are transferred to the genus Giliastrum. In addition, two new tribes of Polemoniaceae are recognized.
