Dipentodontaceae is a monospecific family erected by Merrill (1941) to contain only the species Dipentodon sinicus from southern China, northern Myanmar and northeastern India. Its taxonomic position remains uncertain and the family has been placed in Huerteales by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group, alongside Tapisciaceae and the orphan genus Perrottetia, which lacks a family placement (Stevens 2001–2008).
