It occurs on New Caledonia, where it is parasitic on another member of the Podocarpaceae, Falcatifolium taxoides.
The genus Phyllocladus, here included in Podocarpaceae on genetic evidence, is treated by some botanists in its own family Phyllocladaceae.

 Podocarpaceae description
Although the second-largest conifer family, the Podocarpaceae are far less well-known than the other two big families, Pinaceae and Cupressaceae.
The Podocarpaceae are chiefly a tropical family, thus few species have attracted interest among the European horticultural community and few species are known for their ornamental value.
This is a regrettable state of affairs, because the Podocarpaceae probably contain more species threatened by overcutting and habitat loss than any other family.

 Podocarpaceae --¬† Encyclop√¶dia Britannica
The seven genera commonly admitted are Pherosphaera, Microcachrys, Saxegothaea, Dacrydium, Acmopyle, Podocarpus, and Phyllocladus.
(species Phyllocladus asplenifolius), slow-growing ornamental and timber conifer of the family Podocarpaceae, native to temperate rain forests of Tasmania at elevations from sea level to 750 m (2,500 feet).
The tree is shrubby at high elevations but may grow to 18 m (60 feet) and occasionally 30 m (100 feet) in lower areas.

 Encyclopedia article on Pinophyta [EncycloZine]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
In other interpretations, the Cephalotaxaceae may be better included within the Taxaceae, and some authors additionally recognise Phyllocladaceae as distinct from Podocarpaceae (in which it is included here).
In the majority of conifers, the leaves are arranged spirally, exceptions being most of Cupressaceae and one genus in Podocarpaceae, where they are arranged in decussate opposite pairs or whorls of 3 (-4).
In the families Podocarpaceae, Cephalotaxaceae, Taxaceae, and one Cupressaceae genus (Juniperus), the scales are soft, fleshy, sweet and brightly coloured, and are eaten by fruit-eating birds, which then pass the seeds in their droppings.

Podocarpaceae, a Gymnosperm family, exhibit large differences from the model family Pinaceae.
This natural limit noticed for many plant groups may have influence plant evolution and radiation.
Nuclear and chloroplastic genes have been thus sequenced in order to investigate relationships among Vietnamese Podocarpaceae and with several South East-Asia species.

 Molecular Cytogenetics and Genome Organization - Pat Heslop-Harrison
Two other simple sequence repeats, (AAC) 5 and (GATA) 4, show a diffuse pattern of hybridization sites distributed along all chromosomes.
Southern blots using a variety of probes obtained from the reverse transcriptase of retroelements (gypsy, copia and LINE) from Podocarpus totara, P. nivalis and Dacrycarpus dacrydioides show that these retroelements are abundant and widespread in Podocarpaceae and also in others conifers.
Some retroelements such as copia pPonty3 and gypsy pPot1li are more abundant in the genome of Picea abies and Ginkgo biloba than in the species from which they was amplified.
