As is true for any botanical name, circumscription of the subclass will vary with the taxonomic system being used; the only requirement being that it includes the family Hamamelidaceae. The APG II system does not recognize named taxa above the rank of order but places most of the taxa involved in the rosids clade, with Hamamelidaceae itself in order Saxifragales.
