Menispermaceae Family:

Menispermaceae Juss.

men-ee-SPERM-uh-see-ee
OR

The plant family Menispermaceae was named and described as such by Antoine Laurent de Jussieu in Genera Plantarum in 1789.

As of 4-15-21 when I last updated this page, Plants of the World lists 75 genera in the family commonly referred to as the Moonseed Family.

As far as I know, the only species in the family I have run across is Menispermum canadense.

Below are a couple of links for further reading.
