A few intergeneric and interspecific crosses were tried for studying the relationships within the subtribe <em>Euphaseoleae</em> and between the subtribes, <em>Euphaseoleae</em> and <em>Cajaneae</em>. Most of the crossings failed to produce normal seed. But the success of crossings between two species, one of <em>Dolichos</em> and one of <em>Cajanus</em> suggests a close relationship of the two genera of different subtribes.
