Order Eriocaulales

The Eriocaulales are an order of monocots, including the tiny pipewort family, Eriocaulaceae[?]. The family Xyridaceae[?], which under Cronquist was placed in the Commelinales, is sometimes included here as well, from which the whole order is sometimes called the Xyridales. Some authors have also placed the Restionaceae[?] here as well.
