Annual to perennial herb; generally fleshy. Stem: 1–many, generally glabrous. Leaf: simple, alternate or opposite. Inflorescence: axillary or terminal; cyme, raceme, panicle, umbel, or flower 1. Flower: bisexual, radial; sepals generally 2(9), free; petals (1)2–19, free or ± fused; stamens 1–many, epipetalous or not, anthers pink, rose, or yellow; ovary superior, chamber 1, ovules 1–many, placenta basal or free-central; styles (0)1–8, generally fused at base, branched. Fruit: capsule, circumscissile or 2–3-valved. Seed: 1–many, shiny or ± pebbly or sculptured, black or gray, generally with oil-filled appendage as food for ants.
± 22 genera, ± 230 species: generally temperate America, Asia, Australia, Europe, Kerguelen Is, New Zealand, southern Africa, poorly represented in Europe; some cultivated (Lewisia, Calandrinia).

Key to Montiaceae
Annual [perennial herb], ± fleshy, ± glabrous or glaucous. Stem: several to many, prostrate to erect, 3–45 cm. Leaf: simple, alternate; blade linear to spoon-shaped, flat [cylindric]. Inflorescence: raceme or panicle; bracts leaf-like [or scarious]. Flower: sepals 2, overlapped, persistent in fruit; petals (3)5(7), red [(white)]; stamens 3–15; style 3-branched. Fruit: 3-valved. Seed: 6–many, ovate to ± elliptic, generally black, smooth, finely tubercled, or with fine, net-like pattern.Key to Calandrinia
150 species: western America, Australia. (J.L. Calandrini, Swiss scientist, 1703–1758) [Hershkovitz 1993 Ann Missouri Bot Gard 80:333–365, 366–396] Other taxa in TJM (1993) moved to Cistanthe.

Annual, ± glabrous. Stem: spreading. Leaf: 1–10 cm, linear to oblanceolate. Inflorescence: raceme, elongate; pedicel 4–25 mm, generally straight in fruit. Flower: sepals 2.5–8 mm, glabrous to ciliate; petals generally 5, 4–15 mm; stamens 3–15. Seed: 10–20, 1–2.5 mm wide, elliptic.
2n=24. Common. Sandy to loamy soil, grassy areas, cultivated fields; < 2200 m. California Floristic Province, w Modoc Plateau, s East of Sierra Nevada, n Desert Mountains (Coso Range); to New Mexico, Central America; northwestern South America. Up to 30 seeds not uncommon at Pinnacles National Monument according to Sara Reid (pers. comm. to editors). Feb–May [Online Interchange]
Unabridged note: Variable vegetatively, uniform in flower, fruit, seed; genetic evidence supports segregation of Calandrinia menziesii (Hook.) Torr. & A. Gray [Calandrinia ciliata var. menziesii (Hook.) J.F. Macbr.] (western United States, introduced elsewhere), according to Hershkovitz (pers. comm.).
