BSI Flora of Mah mentions Periplocaceae as a different family and the genera included in it are Cryptostegia; Cryptolepis and Hemidesmus.
According to GRIN it is synonym of Apocynaceae.

In one the links sent by Balkar ji in the write up, besides the 11 families mentioned below, Cryptostegiaceae is also mentioned as part of Apocynaceae now.  

regards,
Rashida.

I have never heard of that family before, though Cryptostegia is a
genus or Apocynaceae. Balkar sir, can you please give the reference of
this particular family? I would be grateful.

Ms. Rashida, for further details you may please check the following
link of APG III. Just search the family, Apocynaceae in the families.

Strange but true. The family does not seem to have been validly published as search of IPNI or AGP website shows, but there seem to be hundreds of websites (including Plantsystematics.org) which list this family mostly as included family of Apocynaceae.
