Two new genera from Costa Rica and Panama, Jessea and Talamancalia, are described. Both genera have elongate corolla lobes, styles with paired stigmatic lines and narrowly rounded penicillate-haired tips, small papillose cells on the achene surface, and neither has tails on the anthers. Jessea has a spiciferous receptacle and carpopodia with many rows of cells. Jessea includes Senecio cooperi, S. megaphyllus, and S. multivenius, with the last as type; the appropriate new combinations are made herein. Talamancalia has mucilage hairs on the achene and carpopodia nearly obsolete. The genus includes Talamancalia boquetensis (Standley) H. Robinson & J. Cuatrecasas and the new species, T. westonii, with the latter as type.
