A synopsis of Sterculia (Sterculioideae, Malvaceae) is presented for the Mesoamerican region, including eight native and two introduced species. The names of three species are validated (S. allenii, S. petenensis, S. ornatisepala) and are described in detail, illustrated, and discussed with regard to their affinities. An identification key for the species, diagnoses, phenological data, and data on uses and distribution are presented, and all examined specimens are cited.
