Fumariaceae Marquis. Fumitory Family.

Key to Fumariaceae

This family includes 15-20 genera and 500-600 species, herbs, mostly north temperate. The Fumariaceae are often now subsumed into the Papaveraceae and separated as subfamilies (Lidén 1981, 1986; Lidén et al. 1997; Judd, Sanders, & Donoghue 1994), but the option remains (and is here followed) to recognize the two monophyletic clades as families: Papaveraceae s.s. and Fumariaceae. Peng et al. (2023) maintain a broad Papaveraceae, but their findings are also offer additional support for the recognition of four families (Pteridophyllaceae, Hypecoaceae, Fumariaceae, and Papaveraceae s.s.).
