    Mayaca is a genus of flowering plants, often placed in its own family, the Mayacaceae.[4][5] In the APG II system of 2003, it is assigned to the order Poales in the clade commelinids. The Cronquist system, of 1981, also recognised such a family and placed it in the order Commelinales in the subclass Commelinidae.

    The group is widely distributed in Latin America from Mexico to Argentina, as well as in the West Indies, the southeastern United States, and central Africa.[3][6][7][8]


    Eighteen or so species names have been proposed,[9] but only 6 are generally accepted as distinct.[10]
