The tribe Dipterygeae is one of the subdivisions of the plant family Fabaceae. It was recently recircumscribed to include the following genera:[3][4][5][2][6][7]

Dipteryx Schreb.
Monopteryx Spruce ex Benth.
Pterodon Vogel
Taralea Aubl.

This clade does not currently have a node-based, phylogenetic definition. A synapomorphy that unites the members of this tribe is "an unusual two-lipped calyx in which the two upper lobes are much enlarged and the three lower lobes are reduced to small teeth."[3][2] Members of the Dipterygeae, as well as species found in its sister group, Amburaneae, are known to produce a variety of resins (balsams, coumarins, etc.).[4][2]
