Durio zibethinus is found in the Malavaceae family and the Helicteroideae subfamily. The species is closely related to D. oxleyanus. The genus Durio is related to the Boschia and Cullenia genera, in the tribe Durioneae. The Helicteroideae subfamily was formed after a genetic split, the second branch of this split went on to for the Bombacoideae and Malvoideae subfamilies. It should be noted that support for these subfamilies is poor and is subject to change in the future (Nyffeler et al, 2004)
