A recent review of all molecular and phylogenetic studies conducted in the last two decades (Al-Shehbaz, 2021) proposed moving Sinapis arvensis, Brassica nigra, and two other species into the newly resurrected genus Rhamphospermum. To date (March 2023) the proposal has been accepted only by Plants of the World Online (POWO) and by iNaturalist, which closely follows the taxonomic changes made by POWO.
