Themidaceae is the botanical name of a monocot family of flowering plants in the order Asparagales, more recently reduced to the subfamily Brodiaeoideae of the family Asparagaceae. The family name is derived from the obsolete generic name of the type genus, Themis (now Triteleia). They are native to Central America and western North America, from British Columbia to Guatemala.
