In the Apg3 classification several clades are recognised. There are several families not easily assigned to one clade, but still somewhat related, like Limeaceae and Physenaceae.
In the Plant theory the above clade is given the name Physenales. Physenales is placed in Phase 3 of the Caryophyllidae. The division in Subphases is tentative.
1. Limeaceae: subshrub, herbs; tropical; Africa, South Asia.
2. Stegnospermataceae or Stegnospermaceae: 1 genus, Stegnosperma; 3 species; woody plants; Caribbean and Central America; segregated from Phytolaccaceae; more similar to Caryophyllaceae than to Phytolaccaceae.
3. Asteropeiaceae: 1 genus, Asteropeia; 5 species; Madagascar.
4. Physenaceae: 1 genus, Physena; 2 species; shrubs; Madagascar.
Physenaceae: Physena, 2 species.
5. Rhabdodendraceae: 1 genus, Rhabdodendron; 3 species; tropical South American: trees; Rhabdodendron had a very lively history as to taxonomic placement.
There is no information about these plants in homeopathy.
They will have a half position in the group, in the family or society. They can be one sibling in a big family, hardly noticed by anyone. They will have a tendency to adapt and please, will take little space and will pass by as nice and easy going. But their inner life is deep and very sensitive, so they will know that it is better to be silent.
Later in society a similar thing can happen. They will be easily overlooked, walked over and be unnoticed.
