Goodeniaceae Family:

Scaevola aemula ‘Scalora Brilliant’ on 5-17-18, #443-85.

Goodeniaceae R. Br.

The plant family Goodeniaceae was named and described by Robert Brown in Prodromus Systematis Naturalis Regni Vegetabilis in 1810.

As of 11-27-21 when I last updated this page, Plants of the World Online by Kew lists 7 genera in this family. There were 12 genera when I last updated this page in January 2021… That leaves Anthotium, Brunonia, Coopernookia, Dampiera, Goodenia, Leschenaultia, and Scaevola. The species in the genus Diaspasis became a synonyms of Scaevola. Species in the generas Pentaptilon, Selliera, Velleia, and Verreauxia became synonyms of Goodenia. That may change as updates are made on POWO…

So far, I am only familiar with Scaevola aemula (Fan Flower).
