In this paper, few species of Leguminosae family considered for phylogenetically analyses which are found in Gujarat state in India and matK gene sequence data from NCBI database are considered for evolutionary analysis. The sequence data of the matK gene are more accurate than rbcL sequence data in the reconstruction of phylogenies throughout the seed plants. Leguminosae family is one of the largest families that contain thousands of species of Plants, Herbs, Shrubs and Trees worldwide. This study shows that species of Leguminosae family which is further classified into Fabaceae (Papilionaceae), Mimosaceae and Caesalpiniaceae; based on morphological characters has different members and the based on the DNA and protein matK sequence data analysis, few species are not related with each other as per morphological classification. We conclude that few species are related with each other as per botanical or morphological classification of Leguminosae family but evolutionary results shows that based on DNA and protein matK sequence data some species are not related with morphological or taxonomical classification.
