The genus Bagheera Peckham & Peckham 1896 is revised. Joining B. kiplingi Peckham & Peckham 1896 and B. prosper (Peckham & Peckham 1901), two new species are described, B. motagua sp. nov. from Guatemala and B. laselva sp. nov. from Costa Rica. Both sexes of these new species are described and illustrated. Additional illustrations of male palps, epigynes, male chelicerae and habitus of B. kiplingi and B. prosper are included for comparison, and the females of these two species are formally described for the first time.
