The seven binomials in Rudgea based on names of species originally described in the genus Coffea by Ruiz & Pavón are treated. Two of them are found to belong in different genera: Coffea acuminata is combined in Coussarea (C. acuminata (Ruiz & Pav.) Zappi) and Coffea microcarpa is combined in Palicourea (P. microcarpa (Ruiz & Pav.) Zappi. Of the remaining names, three are accepted at specific level (R. ciliata, R. foveolata and R. verticillata), while the other two are placed in synonymy within Rudgea.
