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

Philydraceae 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 (unchanged from the APG system, of 1998), does recognize such a family and places it in the order Commelinales, in the clade commelinids, in the monocots. It consists of only very few species of perennial, tropical plants in Southeast Asia and Australia.
