Aliciella is a genus of plants in the phlox family. These plants have been treated as members of genus Gilia until recently, when it was proposed they be moved back to Aliciella. This genus was created in 1905 to include certain gilias that seemed distinct from most of the others, but it was abandoned soon after.[1] Recent genetic analyses suggest it should be revived.[2]

Selected current species:

Genus Aliciella was named for the botanist Alice Eastwood.[1]
