In this paper we propose 11 synonyms and six lectotypes for eastern Brazilian species of Leandra. Leandra urophylla and L. nutans are placed in the synonymy of L. acutiflora; Leandra atropurpurea in the synonymy of L. australis; Ossaea ramboi in the synonymy of L. catharinensis; Leandra pulchra in the synonymy of L. clidemioides; Leandra furfurella in the synonymy of L. cordigera; Leandra macrosepala in the synonymy of L. laevigata; Leandra dusenii in the synonymy of L. microphylla; Leandra dolichodons in the synonymy of L. penduliflora; Leandra dasytricha and L. mosenii in the synonymy of L. variabilis. We also propose lectotypes for L. australis, L. atropurpurea, L. cordigera, L. dusenii, L. laevigata, and L. pulchra.

Keywords : Leandra sensu stricto; Lectotypes; Miconia; Ossaea.
