Key to Tasmanian Dicots
Laxmanniaceae (formerly known as Athericaceae, or as part of Liliaceae) 4b:387  
Tasmania has five native genera of Laxmanniaceae, four with one species each and one (Arthropodium) with four. These are all herbs of sandy heaths and dry forests, and all have conspicuous flowers.

Laxmanniaceae was once considered to be part of Liliaceae, which was a very artificial grouping of plants and has therefore been splintered in numerous families. To see the fates of the other Tasmanian genera formerly in Liliaceae click here.
