Description of the family

A family displaying greater variability than usual, and thus difficult to define in a few short sentences. Since the family is represented in FZ by just one genus the description of the genus should suffice.

Worldwide: C. 12 genera and 300 species, tropical and subtropical, especially Australasia.

Zimbabwe: 2 cultivated genera and 2 cultivated taxa.
