Talinaceae Family:

Talinaceae (Fenzl) Doweld

The plant family Talinaceae was named and described as such by Alexander Borissovitch Doweld in Prosyllabus Tracheophytorum in 2001. The family is fairly new and genus in the Talinaceae were formerly in the plant family Portulacaceae in the tribe Talineae which became a basionym. The tribe Talineae by Eduard Fenzl and described in Annalen des Wiener Museums der Naturgeschichte in 1836.

As of when I last updated this page on 2-25-21, Plants of the World Online by Kew currently lists two accepted genera, Amphipetalum (1 species) and Talinum (29 species) in the family.

My Talinum paniculatum (Jewels of Opar) is in this family.
