The Brunelliaceae are represented in Peru by 12 species in the genus Brunellia (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993), all of them trees. Endemic Brunelliaceae are found in the Very Humid Montane Forests region, between 1500 and 3000 m elevation. Here we recognize seven endemic species, and we applied IUCN categories and criteria to three of them. Two endemic species have been recorded to date from the Peruvian parks system.
