Dasypogonaceae is a family of flowering plants. Such a family has not been commonly recognized by taxonomists: the plants involved were usually included in the family Xanthorrhoeaceae. Dasypogonaceae includes four genera with 16 species.
The APG II system, of 2003 (unchanged from the APG system, of 1998) does accept the family and assigns the family to the clade commelinids, unplaced as to order. In turn, the commelinids belong to the monocots.
The family is endemic to Australia, and comprises 16 species in four genera. The best known representative is Kingia australis.
