The Wunderlichioideae are a subfamily of flowering plants belonging to the family Asteraceae.

The subfamily includes eight genera and about 24 species that are concentrated in Brasil (Wunderlichia) and Guyana (Chimantaea, Stenopadus, and Stomatochaeta), with some species in other South America countries (Hyalis and Ianthopappus) and others (Nouelia and Leucomeris) in Southeast Asia and Himalaya.[1] Distinguishing features of the members of this subfamily are presence of styles with glabrous style branches and a deletion in the rpoB gene. Two tribes, Wunderlicheae and Hyalideae, are recognised.
