Bolemoreus is a genus of honeyeaters endemic to Australia. It contains former members of Lichenostomus, and was created after a molecular phylogenetic analysis published in 2011 showed that the original genus was polyphyletic.

The genus contains two species:
|Image||Scientific name||Common Name||Distribution|
|Bolemoreus hindwoodi||Eungella honeyeater||northeast Australia|
|Bolemoreus frenatus||Bridled honeyeater||northeast Australia|
The name Bolemoreus was first proposed by Árpád Nyári and Leo Joseph in 2011. The word combines the names of the Australian ornithologists Walter E. Boles and N. Wayne Longmore.
