Apieae Takht. ex V.M.Vinogr., Fl. Vostochnoĭ Evropy 11: 339. (2004)

Type genus: Apium L., Sp. Pl. 1: 264. (1753)

Note: If the proposals put forward by Frankiewicz et al. (2021) are accepted then there will be a significant reduction in genera. However, these proposals have yet to be evaluated and so the above circumscription remains.
