The first complete taxonomic account of the genus Bombycilaena (DC.) Smoljan. based on the revision of more than 2000 sheets deposited in 28 herbaria is here presented. A detailed description of the genus and a key for the two species therein included are provided, as well as descriptions, habitat preferences, phenology, and geographic distribution. The typification of the name Bombycilaena erecta (L.) Smoljan. is assessed and a neotype is designated for the accepted name Bombycilaena discolor (Pers.) M. Laínz.
