Needs rigorous editing[edit]

For example, the number of species is given inconsistently in different paragraphs!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.21.145.28 (talk) 08:39, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Going to have to second that request, unless a genus of fish is actually a plant. 64.229.253.196 (talk) 02:33, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

A generic name can be used more than once in taxonomy, provided that it has not been used before in that particular kingdom, like, example, Proteus the salamander versus the genus of bacterium.--Mr Fink (talk) 03:20, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

Another Honorable Mention[edit]

from the article...

"although not nearly as important as the grass family, Poaceae, legume family, Fabaceae, or Nightshade family, Solanaceae."

The family Rosaceae could be included in the list of such important food providing families. The Rosaceae are probably more important than the Cucubits

Common names please[edit]

Please add common names (in parentheses) for well-known plants like cucumber, canteloupe, etc., in the family tree.

Proposed Merge[edit]

Possibly should be merged, or contain a brief set of links to other types of commonly known Pepos such as pumkpins, and squashes.

Additionally, looking up one type of fruit should include a link or to the Fruit general page, which lists each type of fruit.

Cucumis and related genera[edit]

I add the ref Ghebretinsae et al. because I consider an important source based on both nuclear and chloroplast genome, but I disagree partially with their conclusions that the genera Myrmecosycios, Oreosyce and Cucumella should be regarded synonyms of Cucumis, since that there was weak bootstrap support and polytomy (anagenesis) for this.
