is a family of flowering plants in the order Malpighiales. It comprises about 73 genera and 1315 species,[3] all of which are native to the tropics and subtropics. About 80% of the genera and 90% of the species occur in the New World

(the Caribbean and the southernmost United States

to Argentina) and the rest in the Old World

(Africa, Madagascar, and Indomalaya to New Caledonia
New Caledonia
and the Philippines). One useful species in the family is Malpighia
emarginata, often called acerola. The fruit is consumed in areas where the plant is native. The plant is cultivated elsewhere for the fruit, which is rich in vitamin C. One feature found in several members of this family, and rarely in others, is providing pollinators with rewards other than pollen or nectar; this is commonly in the form of nutrient oils (resins are offered by Clusiaceae).
