Pericarp structure was investigated in 158 species of the families Lamiaceae and Verbenaceae. Data from 221 out of 262 genera of Lamiaceae s.l. and a few of Verbenaceae s.str. were collected in a table. A cladistic analysis was performed on the basis of pericarp characters only. The abandonment of subfam. Pogostemonoideae as a taxonomic unit is considered. Examples of groups given additional support by similarities in pericarp characters are: (1) the gynobasic-styled labiates (subfamilies Pogostemonoideae, Lamioi deae, Nepetoideae); (2) a Lamioideae-Pogostemonoideae-group; (3) Nepetoideae; (4) a Westringia-Hemigenia-Hemiandra-Microcorys group (in subfam. Chloranthoideae); (5) a Lepechinia-Chaunostoma-group (in Nepetoideae); (6) a Prunella-Cleonia-group (in Nepetoideae).
