Bomarea Mirb. (Alstroemeriaceae) is a genus with ca. 120 species of generally twining or scandent herbs; its area of distribution is extended from the subtropical humid Andes to the centralamerican Mountains, in a altitudinal range that goes from 1.500 to 4.000 m a.s.l. In Venezuela it is distributed in the Andean Cordillera and in the Cordillera de la Costa. In the present work is made a synoptic revision of the nine species of the subgenus Bomarea that grow in Venezuela (B. multiflora, B. bredemeyerana, B. lutea, B. pauciflora, B. edulis, B. moritziana, B. schutleworthii, B. racemosa, and B. setacea); three of those (B. lutea, B. schuttleworthii, and B. racemosa) are new records for the flora of Venezuela. As a result of the morphological analysis six groups without taxonomical status was defined and are used for the ordination of the species.
