Abstract: In advance of an updated monographic revision of Swartzia (Leguminosae), we discuss the taxonomy of the genus in extra-Amazonian Brazil and present descriptions of five new species. All of the new species are narrowly distributed in eastern Brazil in threatened Atlantic wet forest and coastal scrub habitats. Four of them-S. alagoensis, S. arenophila, S. revoluta, and S. submontana -belong to the diverse and taxonomically challenging section Acutifoliae, which has undergone extensive evolutionary radiation in the region. The fifth, S. thomasii, is a member of the otherwise Amazonian section Glabriplantae and is only subtly distinct from the Amazonian species S. reticulata. The new species and other recent additions to the genus are incorporated in a key to the species of Swartzia of extra-Amazonian Brazil.
