Daphne: a genus of the family Thymelaeaceae: The Thymelaeaceae /ˌθɪmᵻliːˈeɪsiː/ are a cosmopolitan family of flowering plants composed of 50 genera (listed below) and 898 species.[1] It was established in 1789 by Antoine Laurent de Jussieu.[2] The Thymelaeaceae are in the order Malvales.[3] Except for a sister relationship with Tepuianthaceae, little is known for sure about their relationships with the other families in the order.[4] (Wikipedia accessed 2017)
