A taxonomic treatment of the subtribe Muhlenbergimae for northeastern México (Coahuila, Nuevo León, and Tamaulipas) is given. A total of 39 native species are recognized in the study area in four genera: Aegopogon (1), Blepharoneuron (1), Lycurus (2), and Muhlenbergia (35). The names, Muhlenbergia glomerata var. ramosa Vasey and Muhlenbergia spiciformis Trin., are lectotypified. A key for determining the species, descriptions, distributions, specimens examined, illustrations, synonymies, and a brief discussion indicating relationships among all species of Muhlenbergia in northeastern México are provided.
