Key to Tasmanian Dicots
1. Cassytha pubescens

2. C. pubescens flower

Most members of this family are tropical to temperate trees. However the Tasmanian species all belong to a specialised group within the family (Cassytha species). These are common leafless climbing parasites that form tangled masses over trees and shrubs in dry forests and heaths. The flowers are small and inconspicuous. The fruit are small drupes.

This key does not include C. pedunculata, which is listed for Tasmania, but may not really exist.
