Paracryphiaceae

The Paracryphiaceae are a family of woody shrubs and trees native to Australia, southeast Asia, and New Caledonia. In the APG III system of 2009, the family is placed in its own order, Paracryphiales, in the campanulid clade of the asterids.[1] In the earlier APG II system, the family was unplaced as to order and included only Paracryphia.[2]
