Ebenales is the botanical name of an order of flowering plants.[1] This name was used in several systems, for example the Bentham & Hooker system and the Engler system, although the Wettstein system preferred the name Diospyrales'. In the 1981 version of the Cronquist system it was an order placed in subclass Dilleniidae with the following circumscription:

Diospyros lotus

In the APG II system all the plants involved are assigned to the hugely expanded order Ericales.[3]
