Jump to a section: Genera

Contains 22 genera and 100 accepted taxa overall.

This family is completely databased for all Florida specimens.

Family Notes:Many species in this family may be toxic (Webster 1986). Phyllanthaceae and Putranjivaceae are two families recently split from Euphorbiaceae that occur in Florida, as these families do not appear to be very closely related (Sun et al. 2016).
