The pomaceous fruit plants were previously run as the subfamily Pyrinae of the rose family. Molecular genetic studies showed that they form a group within the Spiraeoideae . Potter et al. have therefore defined the group as the Subtribe Pyrinae. The base chromosome number of the Pyreae is x = 17, in the genus Vauquelinia x = 15.

The tribe forms together with the genus Gillenia the Supertribus Pyrodae CS Campbell, RC Evans, DR Morgan & TA Dickinson
