Technical Abstract: In Neotropical Rubiaceae, nine species for Brazil, one new species for Guyana, and one new generic section are described. Six new combinations and one new status are proposed, and the author citation of Psychotria racemosa is corrected. Augusta is expanded to include Lindenia with nomenclatural adjustments.
