Genera 3, species ca. 36 (1 genus, 2 species in the flora).
Mazaceae, which includes Dodartia Linnaeus, Lancea Hooker f. & Thomson, and Mazus, was described in 2011 to accommodate these genera traditionally allied with Mimulus in the Scrophulariaceae. P. M. Beardsley and R. G. Olmstead (2002) suggested that the three genera belonged in a more broadly circumscribed Phrymaceae. Two subfamilies were proposed, but not published, to accommodate the alignment of Lancea and Mazus in a clade sister to the rest of the Phrymaceae. D. C. Albach et al. (2009) suggested that, on the basis of monophyly, Lancea and Mazus could not be included in the Phrymaceae or any other then-circumscribed family.
