AIZOACEAE (formerly known as Ficoideae) 2:237
This family includes a few distinctive native and introduced species of prostrate or scrambling shrubs or herbs. The leaves of all the species are more or less succulent, some are distinctively thick and fleshy. They are most prominent in coastal areas. The flowers have no true petals, but the sepals (as in Tetragonia) or staminodes (as in Disphyma and Carpobrotus) may be conspicuous and petal like.

This does not include a few very succulent species that may be naturalised.
