Amaryllidaceae are a family of bulbous monocotyledonous plants, many of which have become widespread as indoor crops. In nature, they are distributed in tropical and subtropical regions of every continent, with the exception of Antarctica.
There were 4 classifications of Amaryllis. The first was proposed by Traub in 1963. It included Alliaceae, Hemerocallidaceae, and Ixioliriaceae as subfamilies. The second, Dahlgren, Clifford, and Yeo in 1985. This classification included 8 tribes. 1996: Doblies and Muller-Doblies - 10 tribes and 19 subtribes. In 1998 Meerow and Snijman - 14 tribes (new tribes Calostemmateae and Hymenocallideae).
Below is the continental division of the Amaryllis (classification by area of distribution) and classification by taxonomic ranks of biological systematics - tribes. Tribes in the classification of Amaryllis, and there are 15 in total, belong to the family group. Some tribes are especially extensive and include subtribes, and then genera and species.
