A taxonomic revision of the genus Tamonea is provided. Tamonea is a small genus of Verbenaceae, placed in the tribe Casselieae. It is represented by 6 species, distributed in Tropical and Temperate America, from Mexico and the Caribbean in the North, to Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia in the South. Four new combinations are introduced: T. curassavica var. australis, T. curassavica var. cardenasii, T. curassavica var. parvifolia and T. curassavica var. yucatanensis; a new synonym is proposed for T. curassavica var. curassavica. The species T. juncea is lectotypified. Detailed morphological descriptions are given for each taxon, as well as a key for their identification, illustrations, actualised synonymy, distribution, specimens lists, as well as discussion about the relationship between closely related taxa.
