The Zygophyllaceae, of about 250 species, are a family of flowering plants, also known as the bean-caper or caltrop family.

According to the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group (APG II), the heterogeneous family Zygophyllaceae is unplaced to order, but included in the Eurosids I as a sister to a clade composed of several orders. The name Zygophyllales can be used if one finds it appropriate to place the family Zygophyllaceae into an order.
