The Melianthaceae are a family of flowering plants. The APG II system includes them within the rosid clade. All members of Melianthaceae proper are trees or shrubs found in tropical and southern Africa. Francoaceae (the Bridal wreaths) are sometimes included in the family, a family consisting of two monotypic genera found in Chile.
The family Greyiaceae is merged into Melianthaceae in the APG II system. The family Francoaceae is optionally included within Melianthaceae.
