Abstract:Five genera are recognized in the tribe Vicieae (Adanson) de Candolle ex Seringe (Fabaceae): Cicer Linnaeus, Lathyrus Linnaeus, Lens P. Miller, Pisum Linnaeus, and Vicia Linnaeus. A recently proposed genus, Vavilovia Fedorov, is placed in synonymy under Pisum, and a new subgenus is founded. Another recently proposed genus, Anatropostylia (Plitmann) Kupicha, is placed in synonymy under Vicia. Flowers of 261 of approximately 350 recognized species were surveyed for these characters: type of filament apex, type of androecial sheath apex, stigma shape, style shape, stylar hair pattern, type of stylar base, and ovary surface. These data are condified and illustrated.
