Phylogenetic relationships within Araceae tribe Schismatoglottideae are elucidated based on nuclear ITS and plastid matK. Thirty genera are recognised, composed of 13 pre-existing genera (Apoballis, Aridarum, Bakoa, Bucephalandra, Fenestratarum, Galantharum, Ooia, Phymatarum, Pichinia, Piptospatha, Schismatoglottis, Schottariella and Schottarum), five resurrected genera (Colobogynium, Gamogyne, Heteroaridarum, Hottarum and Rhynchopyle) and 11 new genera: Bakoaella, Bidayuha, Burttianthus, Gosong, Hera, Kiewia, Nabalu, Pursegloveia, Naiadia, Tawaia and Toga. Significant recircumscription is proposed for the pre-existing genera Aridarum, Bakoa and Piptospatha. Schismatoglottis remains imperfectly delineated despite resolution of a well-supported corpus defined by hapaxanthic stems and containing the nomenclature type. An updated taxonomic treatment is presented and all necessary nomenclatural changes are made including a new generic name, Vesta to replace Hestia, which has been discovered to be preoccupied by Hestia, a fossil lycopsid. All genera, including representatives of each clade pertinent to Schismatoglottis sens. str. are illustrated from living plants. 2017 © 2018 Dipartimento di Biologia, Università di Firenze
