New keys to all subfamilies, tribes, subtribes and genera of Araceae are presented. Major changes compared to earlier classifications include (1) Acorus is removed from the family, (2) Gymnostachys is treated as belonging to the monogeneric subfamily Gymnostachydoideae described as new to science, (3) Anthurieae are moved from Pothoideae to Lasioideae, (4) Heteropsideae moved from Pothoideae to Monsteroideae, (5) Orontieae moved from Calloideae to Lasioideae, (6) Thomsonieae moved from Lasioideae to Aroideae and (7) Callopsideae moved from Aroideae to Lasioideae. In addition, the combination Caladium tuberosum is newly formed and two taxa of Aridarum, i.e. A. burttii and A. caulescens var. angustifolium are illustrated.
