The Neuradaceae are a family of flowering plant, comprising three genera — Grielum, Neurada and Neuradopsis — totalling ten species.

These genera were formerly placed in order Rosales, and in one case even in family Rosaceae, but they are now recognised as belonging to order Malvales. The family needs further research.
