Zygophyllaceae are divided into five subfamilies. A molecular phylogeny of the family was published in 2000. Phylogenies of groups within the family have also been published. A phylogeny of the southern African species of Zygophyllum was published in 2008.

Peganum was in Zygophyllaceae before being moved to the newly created family Nitrariaceae.

King Clone, a Creosote bush (Larrea tridentata) in California, may be the oldest living organism.
