Both Cupressus and Taxodium show a single shortest tree of 19 steps when analyzed with group 2 taxa [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURES 16 & 18 OMITTED], and both are linked as sister taxa with Cephalotaxus in their trees (((((Cupressus or Taxodium, Cephalotaxus)((Dolmitia, Pseudovoltzia) Araucaria) Majonica, Podocarpus) Pinus) outgroup).
Keng (1969) proposed the recent derivation of the Taxaceae from an ancestral group that contained features similar to present-day Taxus, Amentotaxus, and Cephalotaxus.
Amentotaxus has been allied with Cephalotaxus as a member of the Cephalotaxaceae, the sister family and best outgroup to the Taxaceae (Hart, 1987; Keng, 1969).
The pollen strobilus of Amentotaxus lacks bracts but otherwise strongly resembles the compound arrangement of the pollen strobilus of Cephalotaxus.
It is distinguished from Cephalotaxus by its shorter, alternate leaves and open, red aril.
