Known validly published suprageneric names attributable to Araceae, including family names, are accounted for. Comments are made on nomenclatural problems in these ranks with particular reference to parenthetic author citation (sparingly accepted) and the apparently continuing illegitimate status (not accepted) of suprageneric names based on formerly illegitimate names that have been conserved. Table 1 lists the names alphabetically by the type generic name. Appendix 1 evaluates the status of each name in terms of the recent updating of Engler's system of the family; seven names must be changed. Appendix 2 and 3 add Anadendreae Bogner et French, trib. nov. and Bognereae Mayo et Nicolson, trib. nov., the latter based on Bognera Mayo et Nicolson, gen. nov.
