Semiliquidambar is a genus of plants, most recently treated in family Altingiaceae, though previously often treated in Hamamelidaceae. Recent research suggests that it may not be a true genus, but that the species normally treated within it are hybrids of other species of Altingiaceae; the taxonomy of that entire family is currently under review pending the results of molecular phylogenetic investigations[1]

There are 3 species currently treated in Semiliquidambar:
