Pandaceae Engl. & Gilg


* Angiosperm Phylogeny Website[1]

The family Pandaceae consists of three genera that were formerly recognized in the Euphorbiaceae. Those are:

* Galearia (from tribe Galearieae, subfamily Acalyphoideae, family Euphorbiaceae)
* Microdesmis (from tribe Galearieae, subfamily Acalyphoideae, family Euphorbiaceae)
* Panda (from tribe Galearieae, subfamily Acalyphoideae, family Euphorbiaceae)

These genera contain 15 species, which especially live in West Africa or Southeast Asia.[1]

The genus Centroplacus was formerly included in the Pandaceae and had also been recognized in the tribe Centroplaceae, family Phyllanthaceae). The APG III system recognized this genus as a part of the family Centroplacaceae.[2]
