We present here new records of Passiflora (Passifloraceae sensu stricto) species from Maranhão state, Brazil: P. cincinnata Mast., P. picturata Ker Gawl., and P. vespertilio L. This is the first report of occurrence of P. vespertilio tonortheastern Brazil. Our data reinforces the need for more collections in Maranhão, as the great environmental richness of the state is not yet sufficiently studied.
