Cyrillaceae is a small family of flowering plants in the order Ericales, native to warm temperate to tropical regions of the Americas. The family comprises two genera, each with a single species, Cyrilla racemiflora and Cliftonia monophylla.
In the past, many botanists included a third genus Purdiaea in the family, though recent research has shown this genus is better placed in the closely related family Clethraceae (Anderberg & Zhang 2002).
