The circumscription recognized by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group (APG) includes Apocynaceae (including Asclepiadaceae), Gelsemiaceae (segregated from Loganiaceae), Gentianaceae (including Saccifoliaceae), Loganiaceae, and Rubiaceae.

Under the APG definition some well-known members of Gentianales are coffee, gardenias, and frangipani.

APG includes Retziaceae in Stilbaceae (order Lamiales).
