In his conclusion, however, Dickison modestly admitted that he continued to be perplexed by Oncotheca's pentalacunar nodes and questioned whether Oncothecaceae might be related to Paracryphiaceae, Actinidiaceae
, or Sphenostemonaceae (keep in mind that his 1977 study on Paracryphiaceae was completed a year after his first study on Oncothecaceae).
However, Dickison and Baas (1977) found similarities with Sphenostemonaceae, Actinidiaceae, and Theaceae, and Schmid (1978) found affinities with Actinidiaceae; Hufford (1992) placed the family as sister to Dilleniaceae and Theaceae.

Pollen morphology of the Dilleniaceae and Actinidiaceae
Cyrillaceae and Clethraceae were included in Cronquist's (1981) order Ericales; in addition, Takhtajan (1997) placed Actinidiaceae in Ericales, and subsequent morphological and molecular phylogenetic studies have included representatives of Actinidiaceae, Glethraceae, and Cyrillaceae.
