In the present work, based on material from several localities in Brazil, the genus Aturbina is reviewed. Two new species, A. maculata, sp. nov. and A. nigra, sp. nov. are described based on nymphs and adults; the type-species, A. georgei, is redescribed based on nymphs and reared adults; the nymphs and adults of A. beatrixae are respectively described and redescribed, as well as recorded from Brazil for the first time. Based on these findings, an updated key to nymphs and adults of the genus is provided.
