Abstract: Morphological and anatomical characters used to separate the genera related to Avena L. (Poaceae: Aveneae) are analyzed. The taxonomic importance of these characters is discussed with regard to recent molecular studies. Six genera of peren- nial oats are recognized: Arrhenatherum P. Beauv., Pseudar- rhenatherum Rouy, Helictotrichon Besser, Avenula (Dumort.) Dumort., Tricholemma (Röser) Röser and Helictochloa Romero Zarco (described here) is accepted. New combinations for the species included in Helictochloa are proposed. A key to Avena related genera from the Mediterranean region is given.
