Corypheae is a tribe of palm trees in the subfamily Coryphoideae.[1] In previous classifications, tribe Corypheae included four subtribes: Coryphinae, Livistoninae, Thrinacinae and Sabalinae,[2] but recent phylogenetic studies have led to the genera within these subtribes being transferred into other tribes (Chuniophoeniceae, Trachycarpeae, Cryosophileae and Sabaleae).[3][4] Tribe Corypheae is now restricted to the genus Corypha alone.
