Tecophilaeaceae

Tecophilaeaceae is a family of flowering plants, placed in the order Asparagales of the monocots.[1]

The family has only recently been recognized by taxonomists. The APG III system of 2009 (unchanged from the 1998 and 2003 versions) does recognize this family. The family then includes over half a dozen genera, with only a few dozen species, occurring in Africa, in western South America and western North America. This circumscription includes the genus Cyanastrum, which sometimes has been treated as a separate family Cyanastraceae.
