FAMILY INDEX

FAMILY CODE: PRIMUL
FAMILY SCIENTIFIC: Primulaceae
FAMILY AUTHORITY: Ventenat 1799
FAMILY COMMON: Primrose Family
FAMILY SUMMARY: As broadly circumscribed to include Myrsinaceae and Samolaceae, cosmopolitan in distribution. Following the discovery that various herbaceous and largely temperate genera (Lysimachia [including Trientalis and Anagallis], Samolus, etc.) traditionally placed in Primulaceae actually were more closely related to the largely tropical and woody Myrsinaceae, various authors, including Källersjö, Bergqvist, & Anderberg (2000) and Martins, Oberprieler, & Hellwig (2003) proposed the transfer of Lysimachia, Anagallis, and Trientalis to Myrsinaceae and of Samolus to Theophrastaceae. APG III (2009) alternatively merges Samolaceae and Myrsinaceae into Primulaceae, and recognizes variation at the subfamilial and tribal ranks; this approach is followed here.
