Sarcobataceae Behnke


* Stevens, P. F. (2001 onwards). Angiosperm Phylogeny Website. Version 6, May 2005. [1]

Sarcobataceae is the botanical name for a family of flowering plants. This name has only recently been published, and such a family has been recognized by very few taxonomists.

The APG II system, of 2003 (unchanged from the APG system, of 1998), does recognize this family and assigns it to the order Caryophyllales in the clade core eudicots. The family comprises a single genus, Sarcobatus, totalling one or two species in North America. These plants were formerly treated in the family Chenopodiaceae.
