The generic concept adopted in our forthcoming volume of the family Cyperaceae for the Tropical African Flowering Plants series requires some new combinations in Cyperaceae. Our compilation of Cyperaceae is a compromise between traditional and the most recent treatments as regards Cyperus. We therefore propose 18 new combinations and a replacement name for taxa first described in Cyperus L. transferred to the genera Kyllinga Vahl, Mariscus Rottb. and Pycreus P. Beauv.: Kyllinga brunneofibrosa (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Kyllinga inselbergensis (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Kyllinga microcristata (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Kyllinga rheophytica (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus absconditicoronatus (Bauters, Reynders & Goetgh.) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus baobab (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus baoulensis (Kük.) Hutch. ex J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus boreochrysocephalus (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus cundudoensis (Chiov.) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus gypsophilus (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus kitaleensis J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus micromedusaeus (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus ossicaulis (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus pluricephalus (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus recurvispicatus (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus somalidunensis (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus soyauxii subsp. pallescens (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, Mariscus unispicatus (Bauters, Reynders & Goetgh.) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork, and Pycreus micropelophilus (Lye) J.-P. Lebrun & Stork.
