A new classification of the genusJuncus (Juncaceae) is presented. The genus is divided into two subgenera, characterized by the presence/absence of bracteoles and the structure of inflorescence. Lower rank subdivisions, sections, generally correspond to the traditionally recognized subgenera introduced by Buchenau. A new name is introduced for what has been called subg. (sect.)Ensifolii, Juncus sect.Iridifolii. A checklist of supraspecific names inJuncus, with typification and references to the sectional names accepted, is presented in the Appendix.
