The grass tribe Andropogoneae includes plants of great economic importance, such as maize, sugarcane, sorghum, and others. Recent works have questioned the use of the name Andropogoneae Dumort. (1824) for the tribe and have suggested erroneously that the correct name should be Sacchareae Martinov (1820). However, Martinov's name was not published at the rank of tribe. Therefore, it does not threaten the well-established name Andropogoneae. In this paper we lay out the basis for the controversy and the rationale for continued use of the name Andropogoneae.
