A sinopsis of genus Junellia is here presented, following the recent re-circumscription of the genus based on morphologically founded molecular phylogenetic studies. A key to the 37 Junellia species recognized by the latest delimitation of the genus is here proposed, as well as an actualized description of the genus and its differentiation from related genera from tribe Verbeneae. Nine species and one variety of Junellia, never taxonomically treated before, are here described and/or illustrated, or their description is here amended. Two new combinations: Junellia hookeriana var. catamarcensis (Moldenke) P. Peralta & N. O'Leary and Junellia trifida (Kunth) P. Peralta & N. O'Leary, and eight new synonyms are here proposed.
