Tecophilaeaceae

provided by wikipedia EN

Tecophilaeaceae is a family of flowering plants, placed in the order Asparagales of the monocots.[1] It consists of nine genera with a total of 27 species.[2]

The family has only recently been recognized by taxonomists. The APG IV system of 2016 (unchanged from the 1998, 2003, and 2009 versions) does recognize this family.[1][3] The family then includes over half a dozen genera, with only a few dozen species, occurring in Africa, in western South America and western North America. This circumscription includes the genus Cyanastrum, which sometimes has been treated as a separate family Cyanastraceae.
