Aextoxicon is the only genus in the Aextoxicaceae, a family that has been associated previously with the Aquifoliaceae, Celastraceae, Elaeagnaceae, Euphorbiaceae and Icacinaceae, although DNA and wood anatomy both link it to the Berberidopsidaceae (APG 2003, Carlquist 2003). Aextoxicon is monospecific, comprising only the species A. punctatum (Govaerts 2000a).
