Three new species of Tenedos O. Pickard-Cambridge are described: T. garoa sp. nov., from Parque do Estado, São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil; T. carlosprestesi sp. nov., from Barra dos Bugres, Mato Grosso, Brazil and T. nancyae sp. nov., from Panguana, Huanuco, Peru. Storena major (Keyserling, 1891) and S. minor (Keyserling, 1891) both known only by juveniles from Blumenau, Santa Catarina, Brazil are transfered to Tenedos and redescribed based on adult females. Storena hirsuta Mello-Leitão, 1941, a male from Rio Negro, Paraná, Brazil, is also transferred to Tenedos and redescribed. New records of Tenedos perfidus Jocqué & Baert, 2002, T. procreator Jocqué & Baert, 2002, T. infrarmatus Jocqué & Baert, 2002 and T. hoeferi Jocqué & Baert, 2002 from Brazil are presented. Additional documentation of T. hoeferi Jocqué & Baert, 2002 morphology is also presented. Storena petropolitana Mello-Leitão, 1922 from Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, are transferred here to Epicratinus Jocqué & Baert, 2005. (AU)
