Note that the Malpighiaceae and Zygophyllaceae belong to the orders Polygalales and Sapindales, respectively, with both orders being quite close to the Rosidae, hence the probability of finding such alkaloids near to and in these orders. This type of indole alkaloids, or "harmala alkaloids," are identical to those of ayahuasca made from the Banisteriopsis species in the Malpighiaceae.
