Three new Salvia L. (Lamiaceae) species, S. colonica Standley & Williams ex Klitgaard, S. univerticillata Ramamoorthy ex Klitgaard, and S. whitefoordiae Klitgaard, were revealed during the study of Salvia for the Flora Mesoamericana in which 69 Salvia species in total are recognized for the Flora region. The three species belong to Salvia subg. Calosphace (Bentham) Epling, and they are endemic to Mesoamerica. In this paper the species are described and illustrated, and their morphological affinities and putative relatives are discussed.
