Key to Tasmanian Dicots
1. Aristotelia peduncularis
2. A. peduncularis flower
3. A. peduncularis with fruit
The Elaeocarpaceae are a family of trees and shrubs mostly found in rainforests. The two Tasmanian species are Aristotelia peduncularis, a straggling understorey shrub of widespread in wet forests, and Elaeocarpus reticulatis, a small wet forest tree only occurring in Tasmania on King and Flinders Islands. Both have conspicuous fleshy fruit and flowers with lobed petals.

It is likely that this family will be expanded to include Tremandraceae.
