Other tropical families that spread to the extratropical latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere included the Magnoliaceae (Liriodendron, Magnolia); Tetracentraceae (Tetra-centron); Juglandaceae (Carya, Engelhardia [=Engel-hardtia], Juglans); and Hippocastanaceae (Aesculus).
based on this phylogenetic hypothesis and the fact that the genus Billia, the other member of Hippocastanaceae and the putative sister group of Aesculus, occurs in tropical America (Central and South America), Hardin (1957a) proposed that Aesculus originated in Central or South America from a Billia-like ancestor with subsequent migration northward into North America in the early Tertiary or earlier, with one part to the Appalachian area and a second element up the west coast of North America and on to Asia and Europe via the Bering Strait.
