Didiereaceae Radlk. ex Drake

Didierea trollii
Living plant (close-up female flowers): Phillipson 2302

Credit: P.B.Phillipson

APGII treatment: Didiereaceae

Fl. Madagascar: Vol. 121 (1963)

Note: Formerly regarded as an endemic family, recent research suggests that the African genera: Calyptrotheca (2 spp.) Ceraria (5 spp.) and Portulacaria (3 spp.) which were formerly placed in the Portulacaceae should be placed with the 4 Malagasy endemic genera (Appelquist & Wallace 2000, 2003).
