The following legume genera in Ecuador are revised: Cajanus (1 sp.), Calopogonium (3 spp.), Centrosema (9 spp.), Cologania (1 sp.), Galactia (2 spp.), Mucuna (8 spp.), Pueraria (1 sp.), Rhynchosia (7 spp.) and Teramnus (2 spp.). The especies of Cajanus and Pueraria, C. cajan and P. phaseoloides, originate from Asia and have become established in seminatural, disturbed habitats. One new species, Mucuna ecuatoriana, is described and several lectotypifications are made. Keys to all species are presented within respective genus along with synonymy, speciemen citations, taxonomic references, and information on ecology and distribution. Many species are illustrated with either line drawings and/or colour photos.
