Asparagales

Asparagales is an order of monocots formerly grouped with the Liliales, many of which were even included in the Liliaceae. Sometimes various members placed here are separated out into the Orchidales and Iridiales, but since they are still closely related I'm taking this group in the broad sense - except in the subsequent list because family usage varies considerably (you can even see some of that on other pages here) and I forgot how to name suborders.
