Aphyllanthaceae is the botanical name of a family of flowering plants. Such a family has been recognized by only few taxonomists.
The APG II system (2003) does not recognize such a family, not as such, but allows it to be segregated from the family Asparagaceae, as an optional segregate. In as far as APG II accepts this family it is placed in the order Asparagales, in the clade monocots. It consists of only one species, Aphyllanthes monspeliensis.
