Turneraceae Kunth ex A.P. de Candolle. Turnera Family.

Key to Turneraceae

A family of about 10 genera and 200 species, herbs, of tropical and subtropical America and Africa. Angiosperm Phylogeny Group III (2009) and Angiosperm Phylogeny Group IV (2016) treated Turneraceae as included in Passifloraceae (along with Malesherbiaceae), but these 3 traditional families are each monophyletic and morphologically distinctive (Tokuoka 2012) and seem better retained at family rank.
