ABSTRACT Euphorbiaceae is one of the richest families in the State of São Paulo, with 37 genera and around 150 species. A synopsis of Astraea was published as part of the treatment for the tribe Crotoneae, but recent taxonomic and systematic advances have brought a more refined knowledge about the genus, especially for the widespread Astraea lobata. This species had its morphological delimitation poorly defined until very recently and, as a result, about five species were distinguished based on morphological characters. In this work, we update the synopsis of Astraea as part of the taxonomic revision of the genus and studies on Euphorbiaceae for the Flora Fanerogâmica do Estado de São Paulo project. We present an identification key, photographs of diagnostic characters, and an updated distribution map for the five species of Astraea found in São Paulo, along with a list of specimens for the state.
