Myrsinaceae (Myrsine family)

The mighty Myrsinaceae has fallen! Now the species and genera in that family have been shifted to the Primrose family, thanks to molecular science. Even Myrsine, the genus that bears the name of the family, is now in the Primulaceae. Things might change again, but for the moment RIP Myrsinaceae.
