A taxonomic treatment of Tapura from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest is presented. Tapura follii is endemic to Espírito Santo State and the distribution of T. wurdackiana is expanded to northeastern Brazil. Two new species, T. martiniae and T. zei-limae are described and micromorphological characters of leaf trichomes and pollen grains, analyzed by SEM, are discussed for the group. In addition, the species are compared to T. amazonica, the most widespread species of Tapura. Descriptions, illustrations, distribution maps, and an identification key for the Atlantic Forest species of Tapura are also provided.
