Grossulariaceae A.P. de Candolle. Currant Family.

A family of one genus, of the northern hemisphere and montane South America (Andes). The familial distinction from the Saxifragaceae is supported by recent molecular data, though the affinities of Grossulariaceae and Saxifragaceae (sensu stricto) are closer than those of many other groups traditionally included in the Saxifragaceae, such as Parnassia, Lepuropetalon, and Penthorum (Morgan & Soltis 1993).
