Pennantiaceae: Kaikomako

Viridiophytes: green plants -> Embryophytes: Land plants -> Angiosperms: flowering plants -> Eudicots: buttercups, peas, pinks, cotton, carrots, and sunflowers -> Apiales: carrots and ginseng

The monogeneric Pennantiaceae was recently erected to accommodate four species of Pennantia, P. baylisiana, P. endlicheri, P. corymbosa, and P. cunninghamii. In New Zealand the family is represented by P. baylisiana a seriously threatened endemic of the Three Kings Islands, and Pennantia corymbosa, which is found in lowland forests of the North and South Islands.

Indigenous or exotic to New Zealand.
