|Tabog (Swinglea glutinosa, Citreae)|
Aurantioideae (sometimes known as Citroideae) is a subfamily within the rue and citrus family (Rutaceae). The subfamily's center of diversity is in the monsoon region of eastern Australasia, extending west through South Asia into Africa, and eastwards into Polynesia.
Notable members are, for example, the Bael (Aegle marmelos), citrus (Citrus), Clausena and Curd Fruit (Limonia acidissima) trees which bear edible fruit, or the genus Murraya which includes the spicy Curry Tree (M. koenigii) and the ornamental Orange Jessamine (M. paniculata).
Description and systematics 
Aurantioideae are smallish trees, large shrubs or (rarely) lianas. Their flowers are typically white and fragrant; their fruit are very characteristic hesperidia, usually of rounded shape and colored in green, yellowish or orange hues.
The subfamily can be divided into two tribes, the ancestral Clauseneae and the more advanced Citreae. Several genera have been recently reassigned from the latter to the former, but the arrangement of subtribes leaves much to be desired. The tribes, with subtribes listed in phylogenetic sequence and genera listed alphabetically, are:
