In this revision fourteen species are recognized, among which one is new to science. In A. junceus Lehm. ex Schlechtend. three subspecies are distinguished. Some species frequently confused in the past could be accurately described. The recently described A. gramineus is reduced to A. stuhlmannii. It was found that the type and only collection of A. crinifolium is a mixture; the fertile parts belong to A. angustifolius while the leaves belong to an unknown grass, or sedge.
All names have been properly typified and all existing types could be examined by the author. For A. junceus a neo-type was chosen.
Descriptions are given of all species and a key is provided for their identification. A drawing of the generative parts of all species (except of A. ranunculiflorus) has been made, and a distribution map of each species has been prepared. All examined sheets are enumerated.
