In Malesia there are 4 species of Dimeria (Gramineae). A brief history of the genus with a key, nomenclature, descriptions, and notes is provided. Dimeria ciliata, D. dipteros, and D. fuscescens are reduced to D. chloridiformis, D. leptorhachis and its var. velutina to D. gracilis, D. monostachya to D. kurzii. Dimeria ornithopoda var. gracillima is not recognised. Cymbachne is doubtfully referred to Ischaemum.
