BORAGINACEAE

Jump to a section: Genera

Contains 14 genera and 31 accepted taxa overall.

This family is completely databased for all Florida specimens.

Family Notes:Here Boraginaceae has been expanded to include Hydrophyllaceae. In a survey, 184 of 272 (68%) respondents preferred the broad classification of Boraginaceae as the sole family of Boraginales (Christenhusz et al. 2015; APG IV 2016). In the same survey, 42 (15%) preferred splitting the order into eight families (see Luebert et al. 2016). Forty-six had no opinion on the matter. The survey was disseminated by Taxacom, Evoldir, and other means. If split into eight families, then Florida would have Cordiaceae (Cordia, Varronia), Namaceae (Nama), Hydrophyllaceae (Nemophila), Heliotropaceae (Euploca, Heliotropium, Myriopus), Ehretiaceae (Bourreria, Ehretia), and Boraginaceae s.s. (Andersonglossum, Buglossoides, Cynoglossumm, Lithospermum, Myosotis).
