Phylogenetic hypotheses and morphological characterizations of genera in the Abildgaardieae have suggested that current generic circumscriptions are not monophyletic. We here provide an updated phylogenetic hypothesis of the Abildgaardieae using nrDNA ITS sequences that continues to support the derivation of Nemum from within the Bulbostylis lineage. We make the nomenclatural combinations necessary to include Nemum in an expanded Bulbostylis, including seven new combinations and one new name. Further, we lectotypify two names and neotypify one.
