Dipterygeae

The tribe Dipterygeae is one of the subdivisions of the plant family Fabaceae. It was recently recircumscribed to include the following genera:[2][3][4][5][6]

This clade does not currently have a node-based, phylogenetic definition. A synapomorphy that unites the members of this tribe is "an unusual two-lipped calyx in which the two upper lobes are much enlarged and the three lower lobes are reduced to small teeth."[2][5] Members of the Dypterygeae, as well as species found in its sister group, Amburaneae, are known to produce a variety of resins (balsams, coumarins, etc.).[3][5]
