Presumably inspired on subclass Asteridae.
asterids (plural only)
- (botany) a name used in the APG (1998), APG II (2003), and APG III (2009) systems for one of the principal clades accepted in the system.
- In practice the cause of some confusion as non-botanists tend to confuse it with a botanical name, with a formal rank.
