In plant taxonomy, the name commelinids (plural, not capitalised) is used by the APG II system for a clade within the monocots, which in its turn is a clade within the angiosperms. The commelinids are the only clade that the APG II has named within the monocots, the remaining monocots are a paraphyletic unit, occasionally referred to as the "basal monocots".

The commelinids of APG II (2003) contain basically the same plants as the commelinoids of the earlier APG system (1998).
