Columelliaceae is a family of trees and shrubs native to the Andes of South America.[3][4][5]

In the APG II taxonomy it is placed in the order Lamiales,[1] but a 2008 study suggested that the family is sister to the Bruniaceae,[6] and the Angiosperm Phylogeny Website proposes incorporating this finding by placing both families in order Bruniales.[3] The APG III system of 2009 thus does place Columelliaceae in the Bruniales.
