Chionographidaceae Takhtajan. Fairy-wand Family.

A family of 2 genera, and 5 species, perennial herbs, of e. Asia and e. North America. We here accept a narrower circumscription of Melanthiaceae (excluding Trilliaceae, Xerophyllaceae, Chionographidaceae, and Heloniaceae) than currently traditional, based on the age, phylogeny, and morphological distinctiveness of these clades (Kim, Kim, & Kim 2019).
