Hanguanaceae Airy Shaw


* Friedrich A. Lohmueller: The Botanical System of the Plants[1]

Hanguanaceae is the botanical name of a family of flowering plants. Such a family has not been recognized by many taxonomists.

The APG II system, of 2003 does recognize such a family and places it in the order Commelinales, in the clade commelinids, in the monocots. This represents a slight change from the APG system, of 1998, which left it unplaced as to order, but assigned it to these same clades (although it used the name commelinoids). The family consists of only very few species of perennial, tropical plants in Sri Lanka, Southeast Asia and Australia.
