Note: "Corbichoniaceae are not recognized, pending development of a consensus; two families for two genera seems a bit much, despite their differences c.f. Thulin et al. 2016" (Stevens et al. 2017) and so Corbichonia is retained here until consensus is reached.

The Lophiocarpaceae are a family of flowering plants comprising mostly succulent subshrubs and herbaceous species native to tropical to southern sub-Saharan Africa to western India. It includes the genera Corbichonia and Lophiocarpus.[3] The family is newly recognized through research by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group III system to deal with long-standing phylogenetic difficulties in placing various genera within the Caryophyllales.[4]
