Would like to inform the group that the latest search on Kew plant list will show an absence of family Bombacaceae. We have been putting Red silk cotton tree as Bombax Ceiba L. in family Bombacaceae. It is now as per Kew in the new family of  Malvaceae !  The genus  Bombax is now placed in Malvaceae and so is the genus Ceiba ! 
 
regards,
Rashida.
