Veronicaceae

Spiny water starwort Callitriche palustris, copyright A. Mrkvicka.


Belongs within: Lamiales.
Contains: Hebe, Gratioleae, Veronica, Plantaginaceae.

The Veronicaceae is a clade supported by molecular analysis, most of whose members were previously included in the Scrophulariaceae (Olmstead et al. 2001). This clade may be more correctly labelled the Plantaginaceae, but Olmstead et al. (2001) preferred to reserve that name for the smaller clade of plantains (previously recognised as a separate family).
